The editor of the Chinese government-affiliated newspaper ‘Global Times’, Hu Xijin, has published a new video of tennis player Peng Shuai, in which the athlete is seen participating in the ceremony prior to the final of a youth tournament in Beijing this Sunday.

Are the second images that appear in less than 24 hours, after this Saturday, the journalist Shen Shiwei, from the state chain CGTN, retweeted some images in which you can see the tennis player surrounded by stuffed animals wishing a “happy weekend” through the social network Wechat.

These are the first images to appear of the tennis player since concern about her disappearance began to grow more than two weeks ago, although it is impossible to determine when and where the photographs were taken. The WTA, which claimed “verifiable evidence” that the player is safe, has yet to comment on these images.

The former number one in the world in doubles has been missing since last November 2 accuse former Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexually abusing her.

Previously, the CGTN television channel sent another alleged statement from the tennis player in which she denied the abuses and assured that she was fine. Both the WTA and other organizations such as Amnesty International and the UN have questioned the veracity of that statement.

Earlier this month, Peng, 35, currently number 189 in the world, stated through his Weibo social network profile that Zhang, 75, had sexually abused her, in a post that disappeared from the internet twenty minutes later. Peng led the world doubles rankings in 2012 and won Wimbledon and Roland Garros, taking her to the pinnacle of tennis in her country.
