Nadal medical data leaked by Russian hackers

Fourteen time Tennis Grand Slam Champion Rafa Nadal has been said to be among the latest athletes to have confidential medical data leaked online.

Russian hackers known as the Fancy bears on Monday published 26 more reports on Nadal and a host of British Athletes inclusive.

The personal information relates to Therapeutic Use Exemptions(TUE) granted to the athletes which allow them to take medicines that would usually be on the World Anti -Doping Agency’s banned substance list.

Monday’s leak details two occasions four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah was given a TUE, one in 2008 and the most recently in July 2014 despite Farah saying it was the only time he had been granted a TUE.

There is no suggestion that any of the athletes whose information has been leaked have done anything wrong.

WADA last week confirmed that their Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) had been hacked, with Venus and Serena Williams among the first group of athletes to have their data published.
