Former Australian cyclist Matt White said Friday he had received a back-dated six-month ban after admitting to doping during his professional career.
White released a statement saying the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) had informed him of the penalty last Friday.
The ban, which has already expired, began on October 13 last year and ended on April 13.
The Australian Associated Press said it understood the ban was reduced from one year because White cooperated with anti-doping authorities.
White said he hoped to return to a role in cycling.
