Jamie Burdekin last played at the 2016 Paralympic Games

Wheelchair tennis player Jamie Burdekin has been banned for four years by the International Tennis Federation.

The 37-year-old Briton – who has not competed since the 2016 Paralympics – declined to provide a sample on 23 March.

But the 2008 and 2016 Paralympic Games bronze medallist said he refused to provide a sample because he had retired from competitive sport.

The ITF said it did not receive written notice of his retirement.
