A dozen people have been arrested and more than 100 put under formal investigation in connection with a doping ring in Italy involving both amateurs and professionals in sports such as swimming and cycling. Those investigated include a one-time wearer of the Giro d’Italia’s maglia rosa, six members of an amateur cycling team, and the mother of a teenage swimmer who ordered doping products for her 15-year-old daughter over the internet.

The six cyclists investigated belong to the Miccolo di Pianezza amateur team, based in the outskirts of Turin, and also under investigation is ex-professional Sergio Santimaria, winner of two Giro d’Italia stages, the second of which, on Stage 1 of the 1986 edition, put him into the maglia rosa.

The mother should be removed as a carer of the teenager - damned disgusting that a mother would treat her child like that.

Benotti 69, what is the law in Italy regards providing illegal drugs to a minor?
