Toure not the first case of failing Drugs test.
As Kolo Toure serves his suspension after failing a drugs test, Toure joins the list of famous Footballers who have failed drug tests.
Medication has been blamed as Toure tries to prove his innocence but others have not been so adamant of their innocence:
Here is a few other examples of players who have failed drugs tests:
One of the greatest players of all time had many ups and downs in his career. One major one was in the 1994 World cup where after only two games Maradona was sent home for failing a drug test for Ephedrine doping.
Hamilton and Mensing only revealed details of the ban after it had been served. He was banned between the 29th of January and the 28th of February 2011 and as soon as his ban was finished the player and his club came out blasting the way drugtests are handled.
As these examples show Toure is the latest in a line of failed tests but he will likely not be the last.
