An Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) showed up for the 27-year-old, testing positive for investigational selective androgen receptor modulators ostarine and S-23, which are regularly used as a male hormone contraceptive and as treatment for muscle wasting and osteoporosis respectively.

The sprinter became a relay world champion in the same event at the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London.

Ujah’s sample could cost his three team mates – Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake – their silver medals won in the men’s 4x100m relay.

Mitchell-Blake was pipped on the line by Italian Filippo Tortu for the gold medal on the anchor leg.
