Reigning Olympic 100m hurdles champion Brianna McNeal has been provisionally suspended by the Athletics Integrity Unit.

The former world champion was charged with tampering with part of a doping control process.

McNeal claimed 100m hurdles gold for the USA at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and was also world champion in 2013.

"The AIU has charged Brianna McNeal (USA) for tampering within the results management process, a violation of the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules. The hurdler has been provisionally suspended."

McNeal is facing an 8-year ban from sport, having previously served a one-year suspension in 2017, following three missed drugs tests.
