    PLEASE leave the boy alone, he needs love, understanding and help. All the media attention is doing is damage! It’s obviously not easy to go back to an ordinary life after stardom as is evident by the actions of both Grant and Ian Thorpe, none of you know what goes on in their head, they did Australia proud during their swimming years, so now, time for a ” fair go” for them!
