Turkey's double European 100m hurdles champion Nevin Yanit has been banned for two years for doping violations.

The decision comes just three weeks after the Turkish federation banned 31 athletes for doping offences and less than a fortnight ahead of a September 7 International Olympic Committee (IOC) votes on whether Istanbul, Madrid or Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympics.
In May, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said Yanit faced a ban following "multiple positive findings in both in-competition and out-of-competition tests".
Asli Cakir Alptekein, last year's women's 1,500m Olympic champion, who had already served a two-year doping ban, was provisionally suspended in May after abnormalities were detected in her "biological passport".
