Missing Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai said she was “safe and well” after being heard from for three weeks following an alleged sexual assault against a Chinese government official.

Some weren’t entirely convinced that he was okay from the description, photos and videos provided.

The International Olympic Committee said in a statement Declaration President Thomas Bach had a 30-minute video call with Shuai on Sunday.

“Peng Shuai thanked the IOC for his concerns about his health. He explained that he is living at his home in Beijing, is safe and well, but wants his privacy to be respected at the moment. That’s why he currently prefers to spend his time with friends and family. Nevertheless, He will continue to be interested in tennis, which is his favorite sport.”

The statement also included a photo of Bach and Shuai on the video call and a photo of Peng smiling.

“I was relieved to see Peng Shuai doing well, which was our main concern. She seemed relieved. I offered her our support and stay in touch at any time, which IOC Athletes Commission President Emma Terho said in a statement, which she frankly appreciated.

Peng’s disappearance from the public for three weeks has caused great international concern over his well-being. Other sports stars and governments from various countries have called for China to prove it is safe.

The statement was followed by many other photos and videos Peng posted on Twitter, and a “WeChat Page” by a tennis tournament.

A spokesperson for the Women’s Tennis Association said: Reuters He said the videos and photos were “inadequate” evidence of his safety and did not fully address the concerns.

This prompted France’s foreign minister to call on the Chinese authorities to provide further evidence of his well-being.

“I expect only one thing: his speech,” Jean-Yves Le Drian from France told LCI television.
