GENEVA (AFP) - Switzerland's highest court said on Monday it has upheld a record damages payment of 17.2-million-euros (S$29.29 million) imposed on striker Adrian Mutu by his former club Chelsea after a positive cocaine test.

"The Swiss Federal Tribunal has rejected the appeal filed by Adrian Mutu against a sentence by Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

"The CAS had sentenced the professional Romanian footballer to paying a sum of more than 17 million euros to his previous employer, Chelsea Football Club Limited," it added.
