Football doping

Strange case of doping in the J. League: Kawasaki Frontale striker Kazuki Ganaha was handed a six-match ban after being given an intravenous injection of garlic by the club doctor when he came down with flu. This rather unusual form of treatment constitutes a breach of the J-League’s anti-doping code. While the consumption of the substance itself is not an offence, the intravenous injection is. The J. League also fined the club the equivalent of 60,000 euros
