US sprint star and Olympic 100m bronze medallist Justin Gatlin on Wednesday pulled out of Thursday's Diamond League meeting in Lausanne for health reasons, organizers announced.

The 2004 Olympic champion had missed Monday's meeting at Linz after suffering from a stomach upset and a fever which saw him hospitalized in Austria.

Gatlin has decided to return to the United States for testing, thereby effectively ending his season.

The 30-year-old, who served a doping ban between 2006 and 2010, also won silver in the 4x100m at the London Games.
