Sharapova banned for two years by ITF


Baku-APA. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has suspended Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova for two years after she tested positive for meldonium earlier this year, APA reports quoting RT. The verdict means the former world number one will miss the 2016 Olympics.

The verdict for the 29-year-old will be back-dated to January 26 this year, the ITF announced on Wednesday.

The suspension can be appealed at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
