Kolo Toure Fails Drug Test and Other Failed Tests

Earlier today, Manchester City and Ivory Coast defender Kolo Touré was suspended after having failed a drugs test. Touré, who joined City from Arsenal in the 2009 transfer window, will find his case subject to legal process.

An official statement on the Manchester City website reads, "Manchester City confirm that the FA has informed Kolo Toure that an 'A-sample' provided by him has tested positive for a specified substance. As result of this, he has been suspended from participating in all first-team and non-first-team matches pending the outcome of the legal process."

What this means is he will definitely miss Saturday's match against Wigan in the Premier League. Whether or not he appeals and requests a new sample be taken is unclear.

With drugs being easily available—and even some prescription drugs containing banned substances—I will provide some slides about other football players who failed drugs tests.
