Great Britain were Friday stripped of the silver medal they won in the men’s 4×100 metres relay at last year’s Tokyo Olympics after CJ Ujah was found to have committed a doping violation. 

Ujah tested positive for the prohibited substances ostarine and S-23, commonly used to build muscle, after the race on August 6. 

The British team finished second behind gold medallists Italy in Japan by one-hundredth of a second. 

As a result of their disqualification, Canada are expected to be awarded silver, with China promoted to the bronze-medal position.
