Tour de France champion Alberto Contador says he will fight to "confirm my innocence" after the International Cycling Union decided to appeal his doping acquittal.

The Spaniard tested positive for clenbuterol during last year's Tour, but he was cleared of any wrongdoing by the Spanish Cycling Federation after blaming the result on contaminated beef. Contador found out about the UCI's appeal after yesterday's stage of the Volta a Catalunya.
