Sharapova announces she has failed a drug test at the Australian Open

Maria Sharapova has announced she failed a drugs test at the 2016 Australian Open after testing positive for Meldonium.

Maria Sharapova dropped a huge bombshell onto world tennis tonight when she admitted she had tested positive for a banned substance at January’s Australian Open.

Applying her legendary calm and determination, the five-times Grand Slam champion made a personal statement at a Los Angeles hotel confessing she had been caught out by tennis’s anti-doping operation.

The highest earning athlete in any female sport said that she had been found to have taken Mildronate – or Meldonium – which was prohibited from January 1 this year.

The International Tennis Federation has confirmed the star will be provisionally suspended from the sport March 12.
