Spanish politicians under fire for backing Contador: "The head of cycling's governing body UCI has criticised Spanish politicians for supporting Alberto Contador in his battle against a doping ban.
Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was one of several politicians to publically back Contador's appeal.
'It's up to sport to police itself and sport should be allowed to do that,' UCI president Pat McQuaid said.
'I don't think [the process] should be interfered with by politicians when they don't know the full facts.'
Three-time Tour de France champion Contador tested positive for banned substance clenbuterol during the race in 2010.
The Spaniard protested his innocence, claiming contaminated meat was responsible for his failed test."
