An explosive documentary to be aired by Al Jazeera links NFL star Peyton Manning to a doping ring.

The special report claims an Indianapolis anti-aging clinic supplied Manning with human growth hormone.

A pharmacist who once worked at the clinic makes the claim in the report called " The Dark Side".

It's the result of an investigation in which British hurdler Liam Collins went undercover in an attempt to expose the widespread nature of performance-enhancing drugs in global sports.

The report will screen in the US tomorrow but has been shared in advance with the Huffington Post.

Pharmacist Charlie Sly is seen telling Collins he was part of a medical team that helped Manning recover from neck surgery in 2011.

Sly alleges that the clinic mailed growth hormone and other drugs to Manning’s wife, Ashley, so that the quarterback’s name was never attached to them.

In a statement to Al Jazeera, Manning’s agent denies details of the report.
