Jamaican sprinter Nesta Carter is at the Court of Arbitration for Sport appealing his doping disqualification from the 2008 Olympics that cost Usain Bolt a historic 'triple triple'.

Carter shielded his face from media on arriving at sport's highest court on Wednesday for a closed-doors hearing expected to last all day. A verdict is expected within weeks.

The 32-year-old Carter is challenging his disqualification imposed by the International Olympic Committee for a positive test for a banned stimulant.

Carter tested positive for methylhexaneamine last year in a reanalysis program of samples from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics.

The case spoiled Bolt's perfect Olympic record of three gold medals - in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m - at three consecutive games from 2008-2016.

In January Bolt admitted it had been 'rough' to give back one of his treasured gold medals although he added: 'It hasn't changed what I have done throughout my career.'

The International Olympic Committee had selected 454 samples to be retested last year, one of which was Carter's. 

The 32-year-old has been a key part of Jamaica's successful relay teams in recent years. 

He helped his country to victory at the World Championships in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
