(Reuters) - China's world and Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang served a three-month ban for a failed doping test earlier this year, the Chinese Anti-Doping Agency said on Monday.

The agency said Sun tested positive for trimetazidin, a stimulant that was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA banned list this year.

Sun tested positive in May during the national swimming championships, it added.
