Gamers face doping tests
It has always been restricted to professional athletes, but now professional video gamers are set to undergo random drug tests.
The Daily Mail reports that a leading professional gamer, Kory Friesen, admitted to taking a performance-enhancing substance called Adderall at an Electronic Sports League (ESL) competition in Poland.
German-based e-Sport organisation ESL is now determined to introduce a comprehensive drugs programme to stamp out cheating in the sport.
The paper said Friesen had admitted to using the drug after winning R3.1 million at the competition in March, where he played the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive game.
