Peru Captain Banned From World Cup

But CAS have increased Guerrero's suspension from six to 14 months on the basis that he did bear "some fault or negligence" for the positive test, and must therefore face a ban of between one and two years under FIFA's own anti-doping rules.

He arrived at a CAS hearing last week flanked by lawyers to be met by around 30 flag-waving well-wishers and supporters shouting "You can do it, Paolo!"

Guerrero was initially banned for 12 months after testing positive for cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine following Peru's World Cup qualifier with Argentina in October a year ago.

While the court acknowledged that he did not intend to enhance his performance, it said he had acted in negligence and failed to take measures against doping violations.

Omo-Agege, who represents Delta Central Senatorial District, filed the suit to challenge his suspension from the senate. When it reconvened, Omo-Agege was still absent. "In sanctioning a legislator, the legislature must act within the law".

Guerrero is Peru's record goalscorer and was named in their preliminary Russian Federation 2018 squad over the weekend, but his joy at being selected to represent his country at their first World Cup since 1982 proved short-lived.

World footballers' union FIFPro has condemned the 14-month drugs ban that will rule Peru's captain and record goalscorer Paolo Guerrero out of the World Cup as "unfair and disproportionate".

The former Bayern Munich striker was previously set to lead his country to their first World Cup final since 1982 following the reduction of his suspension for a positive doping test.

Guerrero was serving a suspension when Peru beat New Zealand 2-0 over two legs in last November's intercontinental World Cup play-off.

Uber won't force sexual assault survivors into arbitration
Uber is simultaneously publishing a safety transparency report that will include sexual assault and other safety violations. Critics have been pressuring the company to change the practice, the Times said.

Guerrero's appeal against the ban was upheld.

Guerrero has scored 32 goals for his nation and helped the Peruvian national team finish third in the 2011 and 2015 Copa Americas when he was leading scorer in both contests.

The statement added: "The CAS Panel confirmed the existence of an ADRV (anti-doping rule violation) committed by Mr Guerrero but also accepted that he did not attempt to enhance his performance by ingesting the prohibited substance".

This is the second ruling by CAS that has a huge impact on Peru's 2018 World Cup journey.
