China: Stop the ‘hyping’ of Peng Shuai

skynews– Beijing is telling the world to stop the “malicious hyping” and “politicisation” of tennis star Peng Shuai.

The 35-year-old has not been seen in public for the past three weeks after she alleged China’s former vice-premier sexually assaulted her.

Video footage was published by state media of Peng attending lunch with friends and a junior tennis tournament in the past few days.

A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman is calling for an end to speculation – saying it is not a diplomatic matter.

Amnesty International has told Sky News that politics and sport can’t be separated in China.
