A year-long government investigation on Thursday concluded drug use is widespread in Australian sport with links to organised crime which may have led to match-fixing.

The Australian Crime Commission probe identified widespread use of prohibited substances including peptides, hormones and illicit drugs in professional sport.

"The findings are shocking and will disgust Australian sports fans," Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare said.
