A Chinese tennis player has reportedly gone missing, and had her social media posts deleted, after accusing Beijing's former vice premier of sexual abuse.

Peng Shuai posted accusations that she was abused by Zhang Gaoli last week on Chinese social media site Weibo, known as the Chinese Facebook.

The post, which claimed that Zhang had forced the 35-year-old into sex, was deleted soon after and reportedly the word wangqiu, tennis in Chinese, was even censored on the site for some time after.

The player did admit she had no evidence of their prior affair, or the sexual abuse she claims happens, because the politician wanted to keep the whole thing a secret.

It's not known why she chose the timing of her recent post, but it did say, "You’ve said you are not afraid.

"But even as an egg hurled at a rock, a moth to a flame for self-destruction, I will speak the truth with you.".

A spokesman for Beijing's foreign ministry was asked about the accusations earlier this month but they refused to answer the questions. »
