(AP) Anti-doping authorities in Jamaica say backup doping tests have come back positive for former 100-meter world record-holder Asafa Powell, teammate Sherone Simpson and three other island athletes.


The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission made the announcement on Friday. It says all the athletes have been notified.


JADCO says it will refer the findings to the Jamaican Anti-Doping disciplinary panel and hearings will be scheduled.


The agent for Powell and Simpson did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.


Meanwhile, local media say a Jamaican disciplinary panel is deliberating after a four-day hearing on a positive doping test by three-time Olympic gold medalist Veronica Campbell-Brown.
