Well according to Paula Radcliff it should. After London Marathon winner Jemima Sumgong had tested positive for EPO in an out of competition test, Radcliffe spent no time in voicing her opinion to BBC Radio 5 live.

Radcliff said "I do advocate making doping a criminal offence so that you can face criminal sentencing and criminal sanctions.

"If it became a criminal offence it makes it easier to track and be able to search where you have strong suspicions."

Jemima Sumgong was due to defend her marathon title in this years competition, she was the first Kenyan woman to win Olympic marathon gold in RIO last year.

The Sunday Times published a story claiming that the London Marathon had been won seven times in 12 years by athletes who had recorded suspicious blood scores.
