Lance Armstrong’s former cycling team manager Johan Bruyneel, doctor Pedro Celaya and trainer Jose “Pepe” Marti have all been handed long bans from sport for their involvement in doping, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) said on Tuesday.

Bruyneel was banned for 10 years, while Celaya and Marti got eight-year bans after the decision by the American Arbitration Association North American Court of Arbitration for Sport (AAA), Usada said in a statement.

All three worked for the U.S. Postal Service team and opted for arbitration when the charges were levelled against them in 2012. Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and given a lifetime ban for doping the same year. – Reuters
