Michael Phelps admits to smoking cannabis after bong picture is published
This article from The TimesOnline is sub-titled "14-times Olympic gold medal winner caught with cannabis pipe."
The Brit tabloid that broke the biggest sports drug scandal in the world for the forseeable future - News of the World - has its main header screaming What a Dope.
Did he inhale? This ripper image from the News would suggest so - and Phelps later came out and admitted that he had demonstrated "regrettable behaviour" and "bad judgement."
Towards the end of the article, however, the TimesOnline suggests that:
"...The Phelps case has a parallel in Britain where Matt Stevens, the Bath and England rugby union prop forward, faces a two-year ban for taking cocaine..."
It struck me that, as Shakespeare wrote in Much Ado About Nothing, comparisons are odorous.
