World Cup: Doping claims first victim

The Portuguese midfield player Daniel Kenedy flies home early after receiving his first call-up for the national team.

Daniel Kenedy (CF Maritimo), a Portuguese midfield player presents a claim of mea culpa as he is caught in a routine doping test made by the Portuguese authorities. He admits that after the season ended and before he received his call-up, he took a substance to help him maintain his weight. However, this substance is forbidden, not for the effects it produces but because it can hide the existence of other substances.

Kenedy’s tears of joy at receiving his first call-up are replaced by tears of frustration and shame.
