Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has been suspended from all football activity for six months. He will be able to join his first team squad members on September 2, 2011.

The FA Regulatory Commission made the ruling today against Toure.

The Ivorian defender was suspended for failing a drugs test. According to Toure, he took his wife’s diet pills because he was concerned about his weight.

Early indications were that Toure would be banned for nine months, so the six month ban isn’t as bad as many feared.
