Paris: Tennis great Yannick Noah accused Spanish athletes of widespread doping in an interview published on Saturday, adding the only way to level the playing field would be to allow everyone to use banned drugs.
The 1983 French Open champion told Le Monde newspaper that French athletes no longer had a chance against their Spanish opponents and said his homeland was wrong to impose such stringent testing on its athletes.
"How can a country (Spain) dominate sport from one day to the next?" he asked. "Had they discovered avant-garde training techniques and methods that no one else imagined?"
