Jamaican footballer Jermaine Hue has been given a nine-month ban after he tested positive for dexamethasone, while the team doctor has also been suspended.

Hue tested positive for the substance after Jamaica's 2-0 loss to Honduras in June in a World Cup qualifier. FIFA claims Dr. Carlton Fraser administered the drug to Hue and he has been suspended for four years.

The 35-year-old has 42 caps for his nation since making his debut in 1999.
