Olympic and world champion Asbel Kiprop has tested positive
Editor's note:This thread started on Tuesday as a question as it was entitled, "Kenyan World Champion doping bust?" but now has turned into a fact as Matt Lawton of the Daily Mail has the story which we have added at the bottom of this post. Also not that we've merged the multiple threads on this matter into one.

Michelle Katami a top athletics journalist on the African scene has this in her twitter feed
