RAFAEL Nadal has shot down rumours that he missed large parts of the 2012 season due to concerns he would test positive for a banned substance.
The Mallorcan’s claims came after the French secretary of sport, Roselyne Bachelot, accused Nadal of doping last week.
“I am a completely clean guy. I have never had the temptation of doing something wrong. When I get injury, I get injury. I never take nothing to be back quicker,” said Nadal.
“We know that Nadal’s famous seven-month injury was without a doubt due to a positive [drug test],” Bachelot said.
“When you see a tennis player who stops playing for long months, it is because he has tested positive and because they are covering it up.”
Nadal has never failed a drugs test.
