Former world 100m record holder Asafa Powell has been banned for 18 months for doping.

The Jamaican sprinter, 31, has been sanctioned by the Jamaican Anti-doping Disciplinary panel after testing positive for the banned stimulant oxilophrine at last year’s national championships.

The ban has been backdated to 21 June 2013 – the day he provided the sample – so it will end on 20 December 2014.
