Botswana’s former world 400 metres champion Amantle Montsho has failed a drugs test, the Commonwealth Games Federation has announced.

Montsho, who won the world title in 2011 before finishing second behind Christine Ohuruogu last year, tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine after the 400m final in Glasgow.

The 31-year-old, who could only finish fourth at Hampden Park last Tuesday, will have her B sample tested on Monday.
