‘The story is untrue': Ukrainian tennis ace Yastremska slams report that she ‘asked lover to say banned substance entered via sex'

Ukrainian tennis star Dayana Yastremska has claimed she has instructed lawyers to deal with an "untrue" newspaper investigation into her doping case, denying a report that her father asked her boyfriend to say sex was to blame.
World number 32 Yastremska has failed in two attempts to lift her provisional doping ban since testing positive for mesterolone, a banned steroid, last November.
The 20-year-old's ex-boyfriend claimed on Instagram in February that Yastremska's father had asked him to "take the blame" by testifying to an International Tennis Federation hearing that the substance had entered her body through sexual intercourse, according to Spiegel .
"I did it," the account quotes Yastremska's former partner as telling a fan. "I did blood tests, wrote a statement, all for free, even though he offered me money. But then he told me that I have to have my hair tested.”
