Bolt stripped of his Beijing relay gold medal

Bolt will no longer hold the 'triple triple'.

USAIN BOLT has been stripped of his Beijing relay gold medal after Jamaican team-mate Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance.

Carter was part of the Jamaican team that won the 4x100m relay in Beijing in 2008.

After an anomaly was found in Nesta Carter’s original sample, the IOC re-analysed his samples from 2008, which tested positive for the stimulant, methylhexaneamine.

This will mean that Bolt no longer holds the ‘triple triple’ which he completed in Rio last summer.
