The worlds of athletics and music have been thrown into shock with the allegation that The Rolling Stones’ guitarist may have used banned substances. Mr. Richards had allegedly missed doping tests and had no recollection of the sixties. With suspicions raised when he clocked 12:57.94 in the 5000 metres.
Despite his age, 71, the spry Mr. Richards recently became the first man to fly unaided from LA to New York. Many have taken this as evidence that Mr. Richards may be on something ‘stronger’ than hay-fever remedy. A spokesman for Mr. Richards refuted the claims: ‘Heroin does not help you win medals for running, it just makes it easier to cope with losing.’
