France and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been banned from football for four years for a doping offence.

Pogba was provisionally suspended by Italy's national anti-doping (NADO Italia) tribunal in September after testing positive for testosterone -- a banned substance.

Italian prosecutors requested a maximum four-year ban in December.

Pogba tested positive for testosterone after Juventus' game against Udinese on Aug. 20, 2023. He did not play in the match but was on the bench.
