It was a news story but it wasn’t my room it was somebody else’s who I have no association with.

There is no way in the world you can get away with cheating if you have a high level athlete. … The IAAF have the right to investigate athletes and everybody. But what did they find? They came to my room. The police were here. They found magnesium and calcium and vitamins. It is injections that I use for myself.
