Twitter Meltdown: Samir Nasri Faces Doping Investigation

Football fans found themselves glues to Twitter on Tuesday night as Samir Nasri's account was seemingly hacked and used against him to make some rather salacious accusations. Whether some, or all, of those accusations are true is still up for debate, but it certainly provided fans with some late night entertainment.

However, while he deals with the fallout from Tuesday night and what it might mean for his personal life, he may very well face some rather more serious questions when he returns to Sevilla from the winter break. The Frenchman is said to have made a visit it to the 'Drip Doctors' in Los Angeles earlier in the year for an IV immunity drip treatment. The procedure was said to have been aid of his hydration, but now according to a report in Spanish publication El Pais the Spanish anti-doping authorities are looking into the legality of what he had done. The Drip Doctors claim that the procedure used just one litre of hydration fluid, but World Anti-Doping Agency rules state that only 50 millilitres of the fluid are permitted to be taken intravenously without a valid medical reason or if a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) has been approved.

Drip Doctors posted on their Twitter account “We provided @SamNasri19 a concierge Immunity IV Drip to keep him hydrated & in top health during his busy soccer season with (Sevilla),”

A number of lewd comments were made and then deleted from the former Arsenal man's account, but that could be the least of his worries if the investigation finds anything suspect. The player then temporarily created a new account to explain what had happened before reinstating his regular account.
