Former world 100 metres record holder Tim Montgomery has announced his retirement, one day after receiving a two-year doping ban from the Court of Arbitration for Sport. "I'm done. I have retired," Montgomery told Reuters in a telephone call fron his Hampton, Virginia residence on Wednesday.

Montgomery also confirmed he had split up with his partner Marion Jones, the triple Olympic champion from the 2000 Sydney Games.

"It's kind of hard to be underneath the same household when you are going through some of the same things," he said.

"We decided to remain friends so we can concentrate on making a future for our (two-year-old) son. We decided to make a decision to better ourselves for our kid."

Montgomery and fellow American sprinter Chryste Gaines were each banned for two years on Tuesday after CAS accepted evidence the pair had taken the designer steroid THG (tetrahydrogestrinone) that is at the centre of the BALCO laboratory doping scandal.

The 30-year-old Montgomery said he had never knowingly taken a banned substance.
