Frenchman Yannick Noah, the 1983 French Open champion, accused Spanish athletes of widespread doping in an interview published in the newspaper Le Monde, adding the only way to level the playing field would be to allow everyone to use banned drugs.
Noah said French athletes no longer had a chance against Spanish opponents and said his homeland was wrong to impose stringent testing on its athletes.
“How can a country (Spain) dominate sport from one day to the next?” Noah asked.
“Had they discovered avant-garde training techniques and methods that no one else imagined?”
Noah said Spanish athletes were consistently beefier than French athletes and said the only conclusion was that they must be doping. He offered no proof.
“If you don’t have the magic potion, it’s difficult to win,” Noah said.
