Russia has been ordered to return their gold medals from the 2008 Beijing Olympics 4x100m women’s relay, after Yulia Chermoshanskaya tested positive for a banned substance in a reanalysis of her sample.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) disqualified her for testing positive for steroid use.

“The Russian Federation team is disqualified from the women’s 4x100m relay. The corresponding medals and diplomas are withdrawn and shall be returned,” the IOC said.
