Kingston - Anti-doping authorities in Jamaica say backup doping tests have come back positive for former 100-meter world record-holder Asafa Powell, teammate Sherone Simpson and three other island athletes.

It says all the athletes have been notified.

JADCO says it will refer the findings to the Jamaican Anti-Doping disciplinary panel and hearings will be scheduled.
