The Court of Arbitration for Sport will not give a verdict in Alberto Contador's doping case before early next month because of allegations of bias in the arbitration panel, sport's highest court said on Monday.

"This regrettable incident has slightly delayed the work of the Panel and the publication of the final decision should now take place during the week of 31 January 2012," CAS said in a statement.

Contador tested positive for the banned anabolic agent clenbuterol during the 2010 Tour de France and was cleared by the Spanish federation, only for the International Cycling Union and the World Anti-Doping Agency to appeal the decision to CAS.
