"Ms Jeannie Longo was cleared of any wrongdoing and will not be prosecuted," the FFC said in a statement.

The 53-year-old Longo, who wants to compete in the 2012 Olympics road race, won the first of her 13 world road and track titles in 1985 and picked up an Olympic road-race gold medal in Atlanta in 1996.
