The Football Association 'disappointed' as Fancy Bears leak anti-doping records

22 August, 2017, 21:12 | Author: Joan Malone
  • Ryan Nelsen has been included in a Fancy Bears list of 25 players who received TUEs to use banned medicines at the 2010

The trio were among 25 players who were granted Therapeutic Use Exemptions, or TUEs, during the tournament, which was won by Spain.

"Today Fancy Bears' hack team is publishing the material leaked from various sources related to football", the statement said.

It is an exemption that allows an athlete to use medication that is on Wada's prohibited substances list because of an illness or condition.

Wada's general secretary Olivier Niggli said past year he had no doubt the attacks on the anti-doping agency were carried out in retaliation for its uncovering of Russian state-sponsored doping across the vast majority of Olympic and Winter Olympic sports.

No England players were listed and there is no suggestion of wrongdoing on the part of those named.

The Russian group also claims a further 160 players failed drug tests in 2015 in their latest leaked documents, with four of the registered tests being administered by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

The former Liverpool winger, who has recently retired, was shown to have used dexamethasone, ostensibly due to stop the Dutchman suffering with teeth problems.

Germany, who finished third in South Africa, have three players named, including former Bayern Munich striker Mario Gómez, who is now on the books of Wolfsburg.

Ex-New Zealand, Blackburn and QPR defender Ryan Nelsen - listed as "Nelson" on the published form - declared the use of prednisone, another corticosteroid.

Fancy Bears has become known for its release of confidential information about a number of high-profile Olympic athletes, but this represents the first time they have specifically targeted football.

Five-time Olympic champion and 2012 Tour de France victor Sir Bradley Wiggins was forced to defend himself following the publication of his medical records, which revealed three TUEs for triamcinolone ahead of three of his biggest races in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The substance must be clearly necessary and not be performance-enhancing.

The hack appears to have obtained information from the world governing body, Fifa, including emails sent in May this year from the FA which give detail about four cases.

It is believed that cocaine was found in three of the players' systems, while the other tested positive for ecstasy.
