Paul Pogba, the 2018 World Champion, faces a doping scandal.

His counter-analysis confirms the presence of testosterone metabolites.

He was provisionally suspended by the Italian anti-doping agency.

Under the World Anti-Doping Code, he could face a four-year suspension.

Pogba claims the testosterone came from a dietary supplement prescribed by a U.S. doctor.

He has seven days to submit his defense to the National Anti-Doping Tribunal.

A judicial investigation will be opened in Italy due to doping being considered a criminal offense.

Pogba cannot train with Juventus Turin, and his salary payments are suspended.

The doping scandal adds to a difficult year-and-a-half for Pogba, including injury and extortion attempts.
