A North Korean medallist and an Olympic athlete from Vietnam have tested positive for banned substances and have been excluded from the Olympic games.

North Korea's Kim Jong-Su has been stripped of the silver and bronze medals he won in pistol shooting.

A female Vietnamese artistic gymnast, Do Thi Ngan Thuong, who finished out of the medals, also tested positive for a banned substance.

The announcement was made by an IOC spokeswoman Friday morning.
