Sport's highest appeal court, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), says that it has upheld the lifetime ban for Jamaican sprinter Steve Mullings.
Mullings, a member of Jamaica's gold medal-winning 4x100m relay team at the 2009 IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Berlin, had appealed the ban imposed on him by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission in November 2011, after he tested positive for the masking agent Furosemide at the National Trials.
It was Mullings' second offence having served a two-year ban after testing positive for methyltestosterone in 2004.
CAS said its panel rejected the athlete's claims that his 2011 test was "unreliable" and there were "problems" with the 2004 result.
