JOHANNESBURG (AP) - The president of the World Anti-Doping Agency says it's highly unlikely a new testing laboratory in Brazil will be ready for next year's World Cup, but it's a problem FIFA can overcome.

John Fahey said there would be a ''transportation challenge'' for soccer's governing body to test player samples out of Brazil.

WADA revoked the accreditation of the current Brazilian lab this year and a new one is being set up, but it is not expected to happen before the start of the World Cup in June.

FIFA plans to fly samples from Brazil to Switzerland for testing. Fahey cited track and field's ruling body as an example of how this can be done. The IAAF transported 40 samples from a remote region in Kenya to Switzerland.
