The list of the fastest men in the world to fail drugs tests grew bigger on Wednesday when Usain Bolt lost his claim to the title of ‘triple-triple’ Olympic champion after a Jamaican 4x100m team-mate retrospectively tested positive for a banned substance and caused the 2008 Beijing gold medal winners to be stripped of their title.

Bolt, the world’s greatest track-and-field star, is now the only one of six sub-9.79sec 100m runners not to have committed a doping violation, with double Olympic champion Nesta Carter caught out in the reanalysis of urine and blood samples from the Beijing Games. But because his team mate tested positive for a banned substance, he has now been stripped of his 2008 Beijing gold medal title.
