Watch the fantastic Being Kolo documentary trailer featuring the dramatic story of Touré including a prison break and contributions from numerous footballing stars.
Before the 32-year-old Ivory Coast international signed a 2-year contract with Liverpool this summer, the central defender was banned from football for 6 months after failing a drugs test – apparently after consuming weight-loss pills that contained a banned substance, whilst at former club Manchester City.
At the time the BBC reported:
Toure admitted the offence – his first – contrary to Regulation 3 of the FA Doping Regulations 2010-11. But the panel took into consideration the circumstances behind his use of water tablets belonging to his wife.
On 4 March, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger – who brought Toure to England by signing him – revealed: “He wants to control his weight a little bit because that’s where he has some problems and he took the product of his wife.
“He is a boy that has a clean life, a very honest living. I just think it is a mistake.”
… but what really happened? Was it this?
