    Cannavaro fails drugs test

    Cannavaro fails dope test, claims it's medicine
    (AFP) – 36 minutes ago
    ROME — Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro has failed a dope test after taking a medicine that contained the banned substance cortisone, it was revealed on Thursday.
    The former World Player of the Year was allegedly stung by a wasp and took a medicine that contained cortisone.
    He requested an exemption on the grounds of having taken a medication in the case of an emergency but his request was missing a document and while awaiting a decision he was subjected to an anti-doping test, which returned a positive result.
    Sources close to his club Juventus have claimed he took nothing more than an anti-allergy medicine.
    Cannavaro is currently on international duty preparing for Italy's last two World Cup qualifiers against Ireland in Dublin on Saturday and then at home to Cyprus on Wednesday.
    Cannavaro is suspended for the Ireland match but was expected to return to the team he captained to World Cup glory in 2006 for the Cyprus game.
    He is due to be interviewed by the Italian Olympic Committee's (Coni) anti-doping prosecutor Etorre Torri on Friday morning in Turin.
    Coni released a statement on its website explaining the circumstances of the positive test without revealing if any action has been taken against the player.

    He should have a chat with Maradona and perhaps they can have some good exchanges.

    Meh, there's a higher chance hell will freeze all over than Cannavaro, a Juve player and the captain of NT, will get banned over doping.

    Guys, cortisone is not actually something that enhances your ability. It probably restores muscle strength or maybe improve it, but always at the expense of damaging your bones. Why would a football player around 36 would wanna risk arthritis from such a young age?

    (unless I'm missing some stuff on cortisone effects and defects)

    guys, raise your hand all those of you who was surprised reading these news.
    Should I live in Torino, I'd under no circumstances look for any drug dealer, I'd only came along gobbi hq and choose each week whatever I felt like doing. probably fair prices, 100% quality, perfect selection, secured sources from all over the world. what more you can ask?
