Paddy Barnes has revealed his fury at being asked to take a drugs test just hours after a previous meeting with officials was cancelled.

The Northern Irishman's initial test on Monday night was aborted as the 27-year-old was dehydrated after a training session, but the anti-doping team returned early on Tuesday morning for a second test.

Barnes, who picked up his second Olympic bronze medal two years ago, arrived in Glasgow on the weekend.
