I thought something like this would come from Mario Cipollini, but it actually comes from the world of soccer. AC Milan player Marco Borriello tested positive for cortisone recently. Like many Italian athletes, there is one thing he loves more than soccer. That is Amore’.
Marco explains that he has identified the source of his positive test. His cortisone was supplied by his girlfriend Belen Rodriguez. Supplied may not capture the essence of the mistake. Apparently, Belen had some issue requiring treatment. Since she is not subject to WADA rules, she treated it with cortisone. The cortisone was later transferred to Marco. If you want to know more, you will need to read the article in the UK Daily Mail. Belen blames herself that their recent “session” is proving “fatal” to Marco’s soccer career.
This may be just one more reason coaches will advise their male athletes in training to avoid the fairer sex.
