Artistic gymnast Luiza Galiulina has been suspended from the Olympic Games after failing a drugs test.

Galiulina, of Uzbekistan, tested positive for the banned diuretic furosemide on Wednesday, the International Olympic Committee said.

The 20-year-old from Tashkent, who had her case heard before an IOC disciplinary commission in London on Saturday, was due to have her "B" urine sample tested last night.
