Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is fighting back against new allegations that he took human-growth hormone while recovering from a neck injury in 2011, saying claims he used the banned substance were "complete garbage and ... totally made up."
"All the time, we would be sending Ashley Manning [his wife] drugs. Like growth hormone, all the time, everywhere," former Guyer Institute intern Charlie Sly told Al Jazeera.
The allegations are part of a new Al Jazeera special report about performance-enhancing drugs in athletics. The outlet secretly filmed conversations with Charlie Sly, a former intern at the Indianapolis clinic where Manning recovered from neck surgery.
