This case involves the well-known (at least, to all football aficionados) case of the Peruvian football player Paolo Guerrero. He was sanctioned for an anti-doping rule violation with a suspension of 14 months by the CAS, under the rather unusual circumstances of consuming tea with coca leaves. The CAS Award was rendered in appeal against a decision of the FIFA Appeals Committee that had initially suspended the Player for six months (see also CAS 2018/A/5571).
