A Kenyan sports mentor has been sent home from the 2016 Olympic Games at Rio in Brazil, in the wake of acting like a competitor and giving a pee test.

Kenyan group authorities said sprint mentor John Anzrah "introduced himself'' as 800 meters award trust Ferguson Rotich and "even marked the archives'' for the doping test.

 "We can't endure such conduct,'' said Kip Keino, administrator of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya. Rotich, who completed fourth finally year's World Championships in Beijing, is set to race in the warms on Friday.

The competitor's specialist, Marc Corstjens, said Rotich loaned Anzrah his pass so the mentor could get a free breakfast in the Olympic Village on Wednesday. Anzrah, 61, was then professedly drew nearer by a doping control officer who was searching for Rotich and requested that give a pee test, which the mentor did.

 "Ferguson is totally befuddled in the matter of why he would do this yet the uplifting news is that he discovered straight away and went to the medication analyzer and gave them blood and pee tests,'' said Corstjens.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has opened disciplinary procedures into the matter, yet commended Kenya's Olympic body for its "quick activity''. Director Keino said the board had not encouraged Anzrah's go to Brazil, including:

"We don't know how he came here.'' Anzrah is the second Kenyan authority to be sent home over doping issues after olympic style events supervisor Michael Rotich. He was rejected after claims that he was set up to caution mentors about medications tests consequently for £10,000 (about N4 million).
