Deco handed year-long ban
Former Chelsea midfielder Deco has been given a year-long ban for doping.
The 36 year-old, who retired in August, having ended his career with Fluminense, tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide and carboxy-tamoxifen in March.
He was originally banned for 30 days, before the latest verdict insisted on an increased suspension.
Deco was born in Brazil, but represented Portugal at international level. He played for FC Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea before returning to Brazil to end his career with Flu.
