"I am sad and in shock at this time. We still don't know the full details of what happened, however I have every confidence that the authorities will get to the bottom of this out in Australia. Training had been going very well for the forth coming World Championships in Manchester and whilst this is a time for reflection I am also looking forward to rejoining my colleagues training out in California."
