A UK relay team has been stripped of its silver medals from the Tokyo Olympics after a sprinter failed a drug test
Sprinter CJ Ujah tested positive for a banned substance after the Games in August, according to a statement from the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

Ujah, who was part of silver medal-winning relay team and and also competed 100-meter sprint at the Olympics, was ordered by the CAS to forfeit the medal he won at the Tokyo Games.

His 4x100 relay teammates Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, Richard Kilty, and Zharnel Hughes were also stripped of their silver medals for the event, the CAS said.

CAS said in its statement that Ujah told officials that he "had not knowingly or intentionally doped, suggesting that the source of the prohibited substances could have been the ingestion of a contaminated supplement."

But Valieva and her teammates can keep their gold medals.

This is the UK team:

Here is the "ROC" team:

Can you figure out why the two teams were treated differently?
