Bordeaux, France, August 4

The father of two young French tennis hopes has been arrested and imprisoned here on charges of drugging the rivals of his children, police said Monday.
The man, who is in his forties, is accused of secretly administering the anti-stress drug Temesta, which can cause drowsiness, to the tennis rivals which his son and daughter, who are both minors, met in competition.

The accidental death of a 25-year-old player last month in a road accident after a competition opened the investigation after it was found that the driver had Temesta in his system.

Investigators followed up a line of inquiry which included a complaint of cheating lodged by another tennis player following a match in which the accused's children where playing.

The man, who is from south west France, was charged Sunday for "administering a harmful substance which lead to the unintentional death of the person or a temporary interruption of work."

A police spokesman said: "We're trying to establish how long this went on for and how many players were concerned, it will take several months to investigate all the cases."
