Contador wait; In brief.

CYCLING: The Alberto Contador saga is set to stretch into a third calendar year. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has confirmed the sport will likely have to wait until 2012 for a final ruling into the Spaniard's positive doping test.

A closed hearing in Lausanne will today hear closing submissions for triple Tour de France champion Contador and the Spanish Cycling Federation in their dispute against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Cycling Union (UCI).

A statement from CAS read: "The CAS decision in this matter is not expected before the end of 2011."

The news prolongs an already lengthy saga following Spaniard Contador's positive test for clenbuterol on the second rest day of the 2010 Tour, which he went on to win.
