Nike Drops Maria Sharapova As Its Ambassador After Tennis Star Admits Taken Drugs


Nike has suspended its relationship with Maria Sharapova
hours after she admitted she had tested positive for a banned substance. The
five-times Grand Slam champion dropped the bombshell at a press conference at a
Los Angeles hotel, confessing she had been caught out by tennis’s anti-doping
operation on Monday night.

The highest earning athlete in any female sport said that
she had been found to have taken Mildronate which was prohibited from January 1
this year and has been taking it for 10 years.
And just hours later, she lost her most lucrative deal – an
eight-year contract extended in 2010 for a reported $70million with sportswear
brand Nike.
The International Tennis Federation has confirmed the star
will be provisionally suspended from the sport from March 12.
