German car manufacturers Porsche on Tuesday became the third big-name sponsor to distance themselves from Maria Sharapova after the tennis star admitted failing a drug test at the Australian Open.

"We regret the news about Maria Sharapova. Until more details are known and we can analyse the situation, we have decided to suspend planned activities (with her)," said Porsche in a statement.

Porsche joins Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer, who said on Tuesday it would not renew its marketing contract, and US sportswear maker Nike, who said they were halting their relationship with Sharapova on Monday.

Sharapova announced Monday that she had tested positive for Meldonium, a drug she said she had been taking since 2006 but was only added to the banned list this year.
