Kenya’s Olympic marathon champion Jemima Sumgong has been suspended for four years for doping.
The 32-year-old was found to have taken banned blood booster EPO in an out-of-competition test in her home country.
Sumgong, who also tested positive for a banned substance in 2012, won the London Marathon in 2016 before claiming gold in Rio, becoming the first Kenyan woman to take the title.
