Interesting piece this evening on File On Four (radio 4, surprisingly) about the use of legal painkillers in sport.

Popped up on my FB feed actually! I only took painkillers during a race once due to a banging headache half way round Ashby 20, promptly vomited them up,in a hedge bottom 5 minutes later
