Estonian Greco-Roman wrestler Heiki Nabi became two-time world champion since the Iranian athlete Amir Aziz Ali Akbari, who won the title in September in Budapest, was caught in doping activities, nullifying his result, reports Public Broadcasting.

According to the international wrestling association FILA, Aziz Ali Akbar was subjected to a life-time competing ban.

Nabi, who initially won the silver medal at the Budapest World Championships, also has a gold medal from the 2006 World Championships and a silver medal from the London Olympic Games.
