Usain Bolt and Jamaica stripped of 2008 Olympic 4x100m gold medal after tested positive on re-analysis of doping samples. So Jamaica has now been stripped of their medals – with Bolt and Co disqualified and therefore Bolt’s triple-triple of Olympic gold medals is no more.

Usain Bolt has been stripped of one of his nine Olympic medals because of the doping offence of his team-mate Nesta Carter.Bolt is no longer owner of the hallowed ‘triple-triple’ of Olympic sprint titles and will have to hand back the 4x100m relay gold medal won at Beijing 2008 alongside Carter.The Jamaican had realized this was a possibility after it emerged last summer that Carter had retrospectively failed a drugs test from the Beijing Games nine years ago.
