Fallen swimming champion Ian Thorpe has triumphantly emerged from the darkest months of his life.
Australia’s most successful Olympian is out of rehabilitation and will attend the Commonwealth Games in Scotland in July.
His manager is in negotiations with Channel Ten and European networks for commentating roles at the swimming. Ten is expected to announce his signing within the next fortnight to work alongside former teammate Nicole Livingstone on the network’s coverage of the games.
“That’s great news that Ian is better,” Livingstone told The Sunday Telegraph.
“That’s what we’ve all been hoping for.”
