Sergio Ramos has been subject of some more revealing Football Leaks

The juggernaut of Real Madrid has come speedily out of the gates to back their under-fire captain Sergio Ramos who on Friday evening was the subject of some damning Football Leaks allegations that claimed the Spaniard failed a drug test after their 2017 Champions League Final.

Within several hours the current Champions League holders Los Blancos released a statement on their official website with specific relation to the Football Leaks allegations published by German publication Der Spiegel, and the support for their skipper is strong;

"In relation to the information published by Der Spiegel referring to our captain Sergio Ramos, the club states the following:

1. Sergio Ramos has never breached the anti-doping control regulations.

2. UEFA requested timely information and closed the matter immediately, as is usual in these cases, after verification by the experts themselves of the World Anti-Doping Agency, AMA, and of UEFA itself.

3. Regarding the rest of the content of the aforementioned publication, the club does not pronounce itself before the evidence of its insubstantial nature."

The Football Leaks have alleged that UEFA – the governing body of European football – was at the head of a cover-up which chose not to disclose Ramos’ test failure, which Der Spiegel ultimately puts down to an administrative error by the doctor in charge. Ramos is reported ot have been injected with the drug betamethasone in his left knee and left shoulder, which is banned by the World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA)

UEFA themselves have come out in a statement to say, as reported by the BBC;

"Uefa strongly and categorically refutes unfounded allegations it has covered up positive doping results.”

"All Uefa doping control cases are conducted in full compliance with the Wada Code."
