London: British sprinter Nigel Levine has been suspended from all sport for four years after testing positive for banned drug clenbuterol, UK Anti-Doping announced yesterday.

Levine failed a drugs test on November 24 last year and it emerged in February that he had been provisionally suspended.

UKAD said the 29-year-old’s ban will be backdated to December 13, 2017 and run until December 12, 2021. Levine was part of Britain’s 4x400 metre relay team that competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics and is a European indoor and outdoor gold medallist in the event as well as a three-time world indoor medallist.
