A Slovenian ice hockey player is the third athlete to test positive for doping at PyeongChang Olympics.

Officials said Ziga Jeglic tested positive for fenoterol. Fenoterol is a drug designed to open the airways to the lungs.

Jeglic was kicked off the team before the announcement of his positive test and was ordered to leave the athlete's village.

The forward played in all three preliminary-round games.

He also scored the winning shot in a shootout where Slovenia beat Slovakia. 

Japanese short-track speed skater Kei Saito and Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky, who won a bronze medal, have also tested positive at the Winter Games.
