Drugs cheats like 2016 London marathon champion Jemima Sumgong are “ruining the sport”, says British five-time Olympian Jo Pavey.

Olympic gold medallist Sumgong, 32, tested positive for banned substance EPO in an out-of-competition test.

Pavey, 43, will race her first marathon in six years on Sunday as she looks to secure qualification for August’s World Championships in London.
