A female gymnast from Uzbekistan has been provisionally suspended from the London Olympics after failing a drug test, the second doping case of the games.

The International Olympic Committee says Luiza Galiulina tested positive for the diuretic furosemide, on Wednesday.

The IOC says a final decision on her case will be announced after her backup "B'' sample is tested.

On Saturday, the IOC expelled Albanian weightlifter Hysen Pulaku from the games after he tested positive for the banned steroid stanozolol on July 23.
