PICTURE OF THE DAY 2

INSIDE SCOOP. A government investigation in southern China has shown that thousands of athletes there are likely to have faked their ages in an effort to gain an advantage over their rivals.

Bone tests of nearly 13,000 athletes found that over 2,000 were likely older than their registered age, according to the Sports Bureau of Guangdong Province, which carried out the probe.

The Sports Bureau of Guandong could not be reached for comment as the entire population of the city mysteriously disappeared shortly after the report was published.
