Bogota's anti-doping laboratory has had its accreditation suspended for up to six months after it failed to comply with international standards, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said on Tuesday.

The suspension, which began on Monday, prohibits the lab from carrying out any anti-doping activities including all analyses of urine and blood samples, WADA said in a statement.
