A Canadian sports doctor whose clients have included Tiger Woods and baseballer Alex Rodriguez has pleaded guilty to bringing unapproved drugs into the United States to treat athletes.
At a federal court hearing in Buffalo, Anthony Galea admitted smuggling human growth hormones and other substances over the Canadian-US border.
By pleading guilty it eliminates the need for a trial and also means there's little likelihood any evidence which could publicly identify who was on his patient list will be presented.
Both Woods and Rodriguez deny receiving any performance-enhancing drugs from Galea.
Galea could be imprisoned for up to two years.
