The International Olympic Committee said on Saturday it has stripped the United States' 4x400-metre men's relay team of the gold medal it won at the Sydney 2000 Olympics for doping.

The decision was made after team member Antonio Pettigrew admitted in May to doping as far back as 1997 and agreed to return his Sydney gold medal, IOC spokeswoman Giselle Davies said.
