The Tour De France champion Alberto Contador yesterday called for anti-doping regulations to be revised after his positive test for the banned substance clenbuterol.

The 27-year-old Spaniard said "the system is in doubt and should be changed. There has to be a limit set for substances like clenbuterol so that quantities as tiny as those found in my body due to contaminated food do not count as a positive." Contador categorically refuted rumours of a possible blood transfusion during the Tour. "I have nothing to hide," he added.
