Nadal gets surprise drug test; follows TV skit
Rafael Nadal gets surprise drug test after butt of doping jokes by French TV
By The Associated Press

MADRID (AP) ' Rafael Nadal says he underwent a surprise drug test toward the end of a week in which the Spaniard was the butt of jokes by a French TV program about his country's alleged ties to doping.

Nadal wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday: "8:30 in the morning!!!Just finished passing a surprise antidoping test...it was expected after everything...but I'm happy it's like this!"

The Spanish sports ministry contacted its French counterparts to complain over the satirical skits. It is considering legal action after Spain's tennis and cycling federations said they would sue Canal Plus for using its logo in a video that poked fun at Nadal.



Former Tour de France champion Alberto Contador of Spain received a doping ban on Monday.
