French Tour rider charged following arrest

10:32 am on 13 July 2012

The French Tour de France rider Remy Di Gregorio has been charged with possession of banned substances or illegal devices, following his arrest on Tuesday.

Di Gregorio, who has been provisionally suspended by his team, insists that he has never "doped", although a naturopath who was one of two other people arrested earlier this week, has admitted to injecting ozone and a dose of glucose into the rider's bloodstream.
