The 16-year-old won weightlifting gold with a combined total of 196kg in the women’s 53kg category.

Her ‘A’ sample was found to contain amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide, which are both prohibited as diuretics and masking agents.

Amalaha will have a ‘B’ sample tested on Wednesday.

The teenager won gold last Friday, as Dika Toua took silver to secure Papua New Guinea’s first medal of Glasgow 2014, with India’s Santoshi Matsa winning bronze.

Nigeria’s Amalaha is the first athlete to fail a test at the Games.
