Chinese swimming star barred from races


China's swimming star, Sun Yang, has been banned from more competitions, training, commercial and social activities as a member of China's national team by the sport's Chinese governing body. This means the four-time Olympic medallist is suspended from domestic and international races.

Sun Yang was detained on Monday by police for driving without a license, after a bus rear-ended his Porsche SUV in his home town of Hangzhou. Sun was not hurt in the accident.

Sun Yang is serving a seven-day jail sentence, and was fined 2,000 Yuan.

Zhejiang College of sports, where Sun trained with his team, has announced that he's been barred from practising and competing, and been banned from doing any commercial activities until his suspension is lifted.
