Following the report, Young was dropped by SKINS as a sponsor, and as an Ambassador for charity Dreams Come True. Many of his other claims, including to have been a triathlon champion, a professional cyclist and to have completed a host of self-styled ultra-running feats are unsubstantiated and have been called into question by independent observers.
