New Delhi:

In a huge relief to the Rio-bound wrestler Narsingh Yadav, NADA has given a clean cheat to participate in Summer Olympics 2016. The NADA panel said while practising it is impossible to keep a watch on drinks, cannot be held as failure on athlete's part. The panel also exonerates the grappler from charges of violating anti-doping rules.

Earlier, Narsingh had returned positive for methandienone – a banned anabolic steroid, following which the wrestler cried foul, claiming that the entire episode was a conspiracy against him.

Narsingh has already been replaced by Parveen Rana in the Olympic bound squad. Rio Olympics begin on Friday.
