Former Tennis World Number One Martina Hingis, who retired from the game in November after testing positive for cocaine, has been banned for two years.

The announcement came after an independent tribunal confirmed the doping offence.

The International Tennis Federation has said the 27-year-old Swiss would also forfeit the ranking points resulting from last year's Wimbledon and also the 130,000 prize money she won.
