Godolphin doping: Eight-year ban for Mahmood Al Zarooni

Trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni has been banned from racing for eight years after a doping scandal which has rocked Godolphin - one of the world's leading racing operations - to its core.

The British Horse Racing authority has also banned 15 horses trained by the 37-year-old for six months.

Eleven failed drug tests, while Al Zarooni admitted he doped four more.

Joe Wilson reports.
