Mamadou Sakho Fails Drugs Test

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho is being investigated by Uefa after failing a drugs test.

It is thought Sakho tested positive for a type of fat burner.

Sakho’s Liverpool team-mate Kolo Toure was banned for six months in 2011 while at Manchester City after testing positive for a weight-loss drug contained within “water tablets” recommended to him by his wife.

A similar ban for Sakho would rule him out of Euro 2016 in France, which starts on 10 June.
