A champion Irish greyhound has tested positive for a cocaine-like drug.

Clonbrien Hero, winner of the prestigious Laurels race, showed traces of benzoylecgonine in three samples.

The Irish Greyhound Board has released a statement in response to the allegations this morning.

But says it can't comment on individual cases which may proceed to investigation.
