Aphiwe Dyantyi hearing into the doping charges against him concluded on Tuesday. A decision will be rendered within the next three weeks.

Dyantyi, the 2018 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year was suspended from all forms of rugby after his mandatory B sample confirmed the presence of banned substances methandienone, methyltestosterone and LGD-4033 over a year ago.

A media statement issued by SAIDS read "The hearing into the doping charges against Springbok rugby player, Aphiwe Dyantyi, concluded after two days of testimonies by expert witnesses and closing arguments from both the athlete and prosecution. The athlete was charged with a doping violation in August 2019.

The hearing was initially heard over three days in September 2020 and adjourned to 3rd November 2020. The independent panel will now deliberate on the evidence and render a decision within the next few weeks."
