The sport’s world governing body, the IAAF, has announced that the 49-year-old Namibian, who won four Olympic silver medals and a world 200metres title in the 1990s, is being investigated by the athletics integrity unit (AIU) over payments he received from Papa Massata Diack, the son of the ex-IAAF president Lamine Diack.

In a statement, the AIU said: “The order for provisional suspension does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation which the athletics integrity unit is carrying out.

“Mr Fredericks enjoys the presumption of innocence until the conclusion of that investigative process and any disciplinary process which may follow depending on the results of the investigation.”
