Laverne Jones-Ferrette, who won a silver medal at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Doha earlier this year as tested positive for a banned substance and serves a six-month suspension, reports are claiming.

The US Virgin Islands was impressive this past season – after clocking a sizzling 6.97seconds to become the fastest women over the 60m dash in the world for 10 years.

She went on to finish behind Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown at the world indoors.

However, her accomplishment will be wiped from the books after it was revealed on Thursday that she tested positive for clomiphene on February 16 – days after setting what was an outstanding mark and two weeks prior to winning a medal in Doha

Jones-Ferrette will now have her medal taken away.
