Whoops: Michael Phelps caught getting stoned (picture)
Being the most successful Olympian of all time can be stressful, so what better way than a few cones to keep things in perspective.
That’s apparently how Michael Phelps copes.
Photos of the US Olympic swim star smoking from a bong have appeared in the UK tabloid News of the World, who claim that due to “four-year bans for drug-taking, Phelps’ dreams of adding to his overall 14 gold medal tally at the 2012 games in London could already be OVER.”
The photos are said to have been taken in November 2008. Neither the US Olympic and swimming bodies, nor Phelps’ agent has commented on the shots, although News of the World claims Phelps’ representatives tried to offer the paper incentives to not publish the photograph.
