  |   Sports

British freestyle wrestler Chinu Sandhu, who won bronze at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, has been handed a four-year ban for a doping violation.

"Chinu Sandhu, an experienced British wrestler, has been suspended for a period of four years following a proven Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV)...," the NDAP said on Wednesday.

"Mr Sandhu's ban will run from 14 October 2016 until 14 October 2020," the statement added.

UK Anti-Doping chief Nicole Sapstead said that Sandhu's reputation had been "tainted because of his own actions."

"Chinu Sandhu was one of this country's leading freestyle wrestlers having won a bronze medal at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and represented Great Britain at the European Games in Baku in 2015," she added.
