Toulon selling doping t-shirt
Cries of innocence, well-timed vanishing acts and blunt threats of legal action are just three of the tactics favoured by sporting institutions faced with doping accusations.
But French rugby giants Toulon have reacted in an all together more up front way to the current investigations into alleged pharmaceutical improprieties which implicate the three-times European champions.
The club have produced t-shirts - yours for just €19.95 from the official club store - bearing the brazen claim "Dope(e) au RCT" ("Doped at RCT") - in a bid to show their disdain for the claims.
French prosecutors are currently investigation allegations that pharmacists in the southern French city could have been supplying the club with illegal substances.
