Mamamia Investigates The Disappearance Of Peng Shuai: The Tennis Star Who Vanished
This episode was originally published as part of Mamamia’s Extraordinary Stories podcast.
It was after 10 pm, on November 2nd, 2021 when 35-year-old Peng Shuai - China’s beloved global tennis star - sat down and began typing. Truncated sentences of an open letter, detailing an affair and sexual assault involving one of China’s highest-ranking political figures, would go on to rock the international community. It took only a few minutes before the post had amassed thousands of shares, likes, and comments. But within half an hour, it vanished. And moments later, so too did Peng Shuai.
