A DECISION on whether 200 bags of blood seized from Spanish doping doctor Eufemiano Fuentes can be tested for possible links to sport superstars has been delayed until next month.

The judge in Fuentes’s trial for endangering public health retired yesterday to consider her verdict, which is due in around six weeks’ time, along with a decision on the unidentified blood.

Dozens of cyclists have already been implicated by the probe into Fuentes, who says unnamed footballers and tennis players were also among his clients. Anti-doping chiefs want access to the blood to test it for links to top sportspeople.
