The way the Chinese regime has “hijacked” the Winter Olympics for propaganda is sick, says Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
“It started when China got a Uighur athlete to light the Olympic flame at Friday’s opening ceremony, to make us think it didn’t actually have up to a million other Muslim Uyghurs in concentration camps,” Mr Bolt said.
“And now it’s produced Peng Shuai … a Chinese tennis champion who won the doubles titles at Wimbledon and the Paris Open.
“The Chinese dictatorship has made her appear during the Beijing Winter games to tell us she’s fine, and we should stop mixing politics with sport.”
Mr Bolt discussed the issue with Senate candidate and human rights activist Drew Pavlou.
