Usain Bolt is no longer a nine-time Olympic gold medalist. The International Olympic Committee stripped the Jamaican sprinter of one of his medals, after Bolt's teammate, in the 4-by-100 relay in Beijing in 2008, tested positive for a banned substance.

Bolt himself has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
