In news just in, according to Nine News, Ian Thorpe has been "found wandering streets in Sydney", and "taken to hospital."

This follows his admission into hospital last week for what was widely reported as rehab for alcohol abuse and depression.

On the day the story broke, however, Ian's manager denied he had entered rehab, instead had been admitted to hospital for a shoulder injury.

According to a story in yesterday's Sunday Telegraph, Ian Thorpe was planning to 'flee' Australia, and go back to his home in Switzerland.

Whatever is happening in Ian Thorpe's life, everyone wishes him the best in getting the care and medical attention he needs.
