ZURICH (Reuters) – Peru captain Paolo Guerrero was cleared to play at the World Cup after a Swiss court agreed on Thursday to temporarily lift his doping suspension while it considered his appeal against a 14-month ban.

“As a consequence, Paolo Guerrero will be able to play at the World Cup in Russia,” said the Swiss Federal Tribunal in a statement.
