Five-time Olympic swimming gold medallist Ian Thorpe has been admitted to rehab after being found disoriented in the street by police in the early hours of today.
Thorpe was affected by a combination of antidepressants and the painkillers he was taking for a shoulder injury, according to his manager James Erskine.
Police spoke to Thorpe after residents near his parents' home in Panania in Sydney's south west reported a man allegedly breaking into a van. He was taken to Sydney's Bankstown Hospital for assessment and was later transferred to a rehab facility.
Mr Erskine said: "He is in rehab for depression."
