Doctors summoned over Cannavaro case

ROME - Two Juventus doctors have been summoned by anti-doping prosecutors to discuss how Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro briefly became embroiled in a drugs probe after taking medication for a bee sting.

The Italian Olympic Committee said on its website that club medics Bartolomeo Goitre and Luca Stefanini had been called to Rome for a hearing on Monday about the case of the player, who was cleared earlier this week.

Cannavaro received emergency cortisone treatment for a sting on Aug. 28 and then failed a dope test after a Serie A match two days later. The 36-year-old had requested an exemption for the medication but did not receive it before he was tested because of a mix-up with the documentation.
