Peru captain warmly welcomed back after lifting of ban

Schruns, June 1: Smiles broke out at Peru’s pre-World Cup training ground in Austria on Friday as the team welcomed back its captain Paolo Guerrero the day after an anti-doping ban that threatened his participation in the campaign was lifted.

The striker’s trip to Russia had been uncertain until the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decided not to oppose an appeal by the 34-year-old at the Federal Supreme Court in Switzerland to lift a 14-month ban for an alleged drugs violation, reports Efe. IANS
