Sun Yang, China’s double Olympic swimming gold medallist and world record over 1500m freestyle, has been suspended from all commercial activities for breaching a “series of team rules”, according to Xinhua.

The Zhejiang College of Sports, to which Sun is affiliated, has also withheld his monthly allowance after the 21-year-old, who won the 400m and 1500m at the London 2012 Olympic Games, skipped more than 40 days of training, the agency reported.
