Lausanne - Sport's highest court has completed a four-day hearing into Alberto Contador's doping case, and the Spanish rider must now wait until early next year to find out if he will be stripped of his 2010 Tour de France title.

Contador likely will find out in January if the Court of Arbitration for Sport panel believed his defense that eating contaminated steak caused his positive tests for clenbuterol during his third Tour victory.

Contador did not speak to reporters as he left the court with his legal team on Thursday.

Contador was cross-examined on Wednesday. He had a final chance on Thursday to address the panel.

The International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency appealed for Contador to get a two-year ban after he was cleared by a Spanish tribunal last February.
