Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes was on Tuesday found guilty at a court in Madrid of endangering public health by administering blood transfusions to top cyclists and sentenced to a year in prison.

A former manager of the Kelme cycling team Jose Ignacio Labarta was also found guilty and handed a four-month jail term but the three other co-accused in the case -- Yolanda Fuentes, Manolo Saiz and Vicente Belda -- were cleared.
