Great Britain's women's 4x400 metres relay team stand to be upgraded to bronze at the 2008 Olympics after the retesting of anti-doping samples from the Beijing Games exposed yet more drug cheats.
The British quartet of Christine Ohuruogu, Kelly Sotherton, Marilyn Okoro and Nicola Sanders, who finished in fifth place at the time, had already been bumped to fourth by the disqualification of the Russian team and now look set for a belated medal.
Belarus' Sviatlana Usovich, an 800m runner who competed in the relay final, tested positive for the prohibited steroid dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (turinabol) following reanalysis of her samples, the International Olympic Committee announced on Friday.
As a result the entire Belarus team, who crossed the line one place ahead of Britain in fourth eight years ago, will be disqualified.
Former heptathlete Sotherton, who won Olympic bronze in that discipline in 2004 in Athens, responded to the news on Twitter by saying: "I've just learnt I could be a Double Olympic medalist. I'm happy, absolutely f****** fuming and sad."

It will be the third British athletics medal from 2008 won as a result of doping disqualifications. Javelin thrower Goldie Sayers and the men's 4x400m team have already been bumped up to bronze.
The IOC on Friday announced five athletes and two weightlifters from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics had failed drug tests following reanalysis of their samples.
They included Kazakhstan's Ilya Ilyin, who won gold in the men's 94kg weightlifting event at both Games. His sample from Beijing tested positive for the steroid stanozolol and from London for turinabol and stanozolol.
Belarus' Aksana Miankova, the 2008 women's hammer champion, tested positive in Beijing for turinabol and the steroid oxandrolone. She finished seventh in London, from which she has also been disqualified for returning positive tests for turinabol and stanozolol.
Another Belarus athlete, Natallia Mikhnevich, will lose her silver medal from the women's shot in 2008 after testing positive for the steroid methandienone and stanozolol.
