Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - Japanese short track speed skater Kei Saito has tested positive in a first doping case at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said Saito tested positive in an out-of-competition test for the diuretic and masking agent acetalozamide.

Saito "accepted on a voluntary basis to be provisionally suspended and to leave the Olympic Village," CAS said in a statement.

Saito, 21, was competing at his first Games had not yet started in Pyeongchang. The case does not affect any result, CAS said.

He is ranked 60th in the 500 metres in the current World Cup rankings, according to his Olympic biography.

Saito "is provisionally suspended from competing at the OWG (Olympic Winter Games) Pyeongchang 2018 and at any future ISU competition pending the resolution of this matter," CAS said.

The ad hoc division of CAS in Pyeongchang, which is handling doping cases referred to it under IOC anti-doping rules, will issue a final decision at the end of the Games, the statement said.

Around 2,500 doping controls are planned during the Games, of which some 1,400 will be out of competition.
