Indian wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt's bronze medal from the London Olympics 2012 is set to be upgraded to Silver after the silver medallist from the 2012 Games, deceased Besik Kudukhov of Russia, has been stripped off his medal for using banned substance.

Before the Rio games started this year, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) retested Kudukhov’s dope test sample with better technology, and it was found that he tested positive. As a result of this, his silver will be suspended and Yogeshwar’s bronze will be upgraded to silver.

Note : Yogeshwar becomes the second Indian wrestler to win an Olympic silver medal. The first was Sushil Kumar in the same edition in the 66kg category.
