Bernhard Kohl retires

By AFP | Monday, May 25, 2009 3.00pm

Disgraced Austrian cyclist Bernhard Kohl on Monday announced his retirement from competition at the age of 27 following a two-year suspension for doping.

"I am announcing my retirement from professional sport," Kohl told a press conference in Vienna, Austria.

The Austrian last October admitted to using drugs to finish third in the 2008 Tour de France as top climber after which he was banned from cycling for two years.
