WADA blasts BOA for 'hysteria'

World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) president John Fahey has blasted the British Olympic Association for "many hysterical and inaccurate public statements" during the case.

Welcoming the ruling, Mr Fahey said:

"WADA regrets the many hysterical and inaccurate public statements from the BOA in the course of challenging the WADA decision.

"The rules have had to be proportionate and respectful of the rights of individuals within the framework of international law. They are not based on emotive arguments or the wishes of any one signatory or individual."
