Nasal sprays with that stuff in it, sells at Boots, and they make it sound like he's a junkie, whatever twat pulled that one on him, must have been on something a lot stronger. I really feel for the guy, his first good showings for a long while and that happens, hope he appeals.

It's a stimulant and it's on the banned list

West is a decade long veteran of this sport. He should well know to check whatever he takes if it was medicinal.

This could've been taken as a nasal spray, it may have been recreational (my guess), or this could be a deliberate pre race upper - which is why it's on the list! Either which way there's no excuses. Dumb bust Westy.
