Jason Livermore, a Jamaican Commonwealth Games gold medallist, has tested positive for a banned substance according to the country's independent anti-doping disciplinary panel.
The 29-year-old was part of the team that won 4x100 metres relay gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scottish city Glasgow alongside eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt, Kemar Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade.
Livermore also won individual 200m bronze in Glasgow.
The illegal substance found has not been named, but Livermore returned the positive test on December 16.
A full hearing has been scheduled for September 11.
Kent Gammon, the chairman of Jamaica's Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel, told Reuters that Livermore “had violated Article 2.1 of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission's (JADCO's) rules", which refers to the "presence of a prohibited substance or its metabolites or markers in an athlete's sample".
Gammon leads the independent three-member panel, which is separate from JADCO.
It has also been reported by Reuters that Livermore has not asked for his 'B' sample to be tested.
Livermore, a 200m semi-finalist at the 2013 International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in Moscow, was absent at Jamaica's senior trials last month.
As a result, he will not be part of his country’s team at next month’s World Championships in London.
It comes six months after the Beijing 2008 Jamaican 4x100m relay team of Bolt, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater and Asafa Powell were stripped of their gold medals.
Carter was disqualified from the race after he failed a drugs test for banned energy boosting substance methylhexaneamine following re-analysis of frozen samples.
The team have all now returned their medals to the International Olympic Committee.
