The Nigerian 110 metres hurdler Samuel Okon has tested positive for a banned stimulant at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Fennell says Okon has tested positive for methylhexaneamine, the same as compatriot and women's 100 metres gold medallist Osayemi Oludamola who has been suspended pending the analysis of her B sample.
