PAU, France (AFP) — Luxembourg’s Frank Schleck, a former podium finisher, was being questioned by police at the Tour de France Tuesday after testing positive for a banned diuretic, his RadioShack team said.

Schleck, who has already quit the race, went to a local police station of his own accord after being told police would be coming to take him in for questioning, according to a team official.

The UCI earlier on Tuesday announced his positive test for the banned diuretic Xipamide.
