American Olympic champion Brianna Rollins has been banned for a year for missing three drugs tests in 2016 – one of which came while she was meeting former United States president Barack Obama at the White House.

Another saw Rollins, 25, miss a test to attend ‘Brianna Rollins Day’ in September in her hometown in Florida.

Rollins, who won 100m hurdles gold in Rio, is banned until 18 December.
