Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Aus­tralian swim­ming su­per­star Ian Thorpe is in hospi­tal in Syd­ney fight­ing an in­fec­tion that could see him lose the use of his arm. The 31-year-old’s man­ager James Ersk­ine has con­firmed that the swim­mer is bat­tling the in­fec­tion, and that it is so se­ri­ous he may never swim again.

“It’s se­ri­ous but it’s not lifethreat­en­ing,” Ersk­ine told Aus­tralian As­so­ci­ated Press.
