KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia >> The Italian Olympic Committee says bobsledder William Frullani has been kicked out of the Sochi Games after a positive doping test.

In a statement Friday, Italy's governing body CONI says it was informed by the International Olympic Committee that Frullani came up positive for the substance dymetylpentylamine in a test taken in the Olympic Village on Feb. 18.

CONI says Frullani asked for a backup test that was taken Friday and "confirmed the positive result, resulting in his exclusion from the Italian delegation."

CONI adds that it replaced Frullani on its four-man bobsled team with Samuele Romanini.
