Kenyan athletics coach was expelled from the Rio Olympics games on Thursday following attempts to cheat in a doping test.
Retired sprint legend John Anzrah was thrown out of Brazil on the eve of the athletic games scheduled to start Friday, August 12.
It is alleged that Anzrah – a sprint coach in the Kenyan track and field team for the Rio 2016 Olympics – had posed as an athlete and gave out a urine sample.
Sources from Rio say Anzrah, the 1987 IAAF World indoor and IAAF championship runner, was caught by doping control officers who discovered a mismatch of his face and the photo on a badge he had worn.
The accreditation badge was that of an athlete who was scheduled for a random doping test. The sources confirmed the coach will be returning home Friday, August 12.
National Olympics Committee-Kenya disowned the official saying they were not aware of how he traveled to Rio de Janeiro.
This comes days after athletics team manager Michael Rotich was also expelled from Brazil following doping allegations.
He was taken to court on Tuesday and will spend a night in custody over claims of bribery and doping.
Rotich allegedly demanded £10,000 (Sh1.3 million) after warning a British coach about imminent doping tests.
Rotich was filmed by the German television channel ARD and the Sunday Times newspaper demanding Sh1.3mn (£10,000) for agreeing to warn a British coach about imminent doping tests.
Rotich introduced reporters purporting to be the coach and an agent of athletes to Paul and Liz Scott, who are official anti-doping testers in Kenya.
