(Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur forward Chioma Ubogagu has been handed a nine-month suspension from the sport for an anti-doping violation, the Women's Super League club said on Thursday.

Before joining Spurs in 2021, Ubogagu was prescribed acne medication by a personal doctor containing the banned substance spironolactone, which is listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency's Prohibited List as a diuretic or masking agent, the club said in a statement.
