American baseball star Alex Rodriguez - also known as Madonna's sometimes beau - reportedly tested positive for two anabolic steroids earlier in his career, it has been revealed.
A-Rod, whose 10-year $275 million contract with the New York Yankees is the richest in baseball history, is thought to be on a list of 104 Major League players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.
The 33-year-old is considered a sporting hero to many baseball fans in America, but is best known in the UK for his links to superstar Madonna.
A-Rod was drug tested in 2003 as part of a survey for the players' union, which was deciding whether mandatory random testing of Major League players was necessary.
The results were supposed to be anonymous, but Sports Illustrated magazine said it had confirmed the high profile player's inclusion on the list with four independent sources.
