Shakul Samed

Ghanaian boxer Shakul Samed has been suspended from the Commonwealth Games after testing positive for a banned substance at the competition in Birmingham, officials said on Friday.

Samed’s A sample was found to contain the banned diuretic and masking agent Furosemide, the Commonwealth Games Federation said in a statement.

“He has therefore been suspended with immediate effect,” the statement said.

“He will now have the opportunity to provide further information, including requesting analysis of his B sample, before any charge is issued.”
