Tyson Gay: 'I wouldn't have raced again if I had intentionally cheated'

Tyson Gay insists that he would not have raced again if he had intentionally take performance-enhancing drugs.

Former world 100m champion Tyson Gay has said that he would not have come back to athletics if he had intentionally used performance-enhancing drugs.

The American was banned in 2013 for failing a drugs test, but he has since returned to his best form and won the US Championship last month.

He is quoted as saying by BBC Sport: "When you put key words or a syringe by somebody's name, it manipulates someone's mind to believe you intentionally tried to do something and get away with it.

"That wasn't the case. If I would have made a decision to intentionally do something to hurt the sport I wouldn't have come back."

Gay is the joint second-fastest man in history.
