The safety of Chinese tennis star ‘Pengshui’, who was rumored to have disappeared after the #MeToo revelations, has been confirmed.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in a statement that on the 21st local time, Chairman Thomas Bach had a video call with Shun Feng for about 30 minutes.

Shen Feng said on the phone that she is doing well at her home in Beijing and that she wants her privacy to be respected. He also said that he will continue to play tennis, the sport he loves so much.

This call was made at a time when the international community’s concerns about Peng’s personal safety were heightened.

Peng’s whereabouts have been unknown after ex-Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Ga-ori sexually assaulted him on social media earlier this month.

Immediately, suspicions arose that Feng was in danger, and the US, UK and tennis circles pressured the Chinese government to present evidence to prove Feng’s safety.

Chinese state media released a video of Shun Feng having a meeting at a restaurant and a selfie he took at home, but the suspicions have been amplified as controversy over the authenticity of the case arose.

The Chinese government, which has been unaware of Peng’s whereabouts, is known to be deeply concerned that this case might affect next year’s Beijing Winter Olympics, which even talks about the US diplomatic boycott review.
