Christie's spot-check fury

LINFORD Christie launched a "continuous verbal assault" on two drug testers who visited him at a training camp in Lanzarote just months before he won Gold in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the High Court was told yesterday.

Christie was asked for a urine sample in a 10pm spot-check by the Sports Council. But his former coach Ron Roddan, 67, told the hearing the sprinter was angry because the testers had spent all day on the beach.

The libel case continues.
