US sprinter Tyson Gay and Jamaica's former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell have failed drug tests.

 

Gay, 30, the joint-second fastest man over 100m, was notified by the US Anti-Doping Agency on Friday that his A sample from an out-of-competition test in May had returned a positive.

 

Powell tested positive for a banned stimulant while competing in June's Jamaican championships.

 

Fellow Jamaican athlete Sherone Simpson also failed a drug test at the event.
