Phelps is a gold medal winner of bong hits

A picture of Michael Phelps using a bong has been posted by News of the World on its website.

Commonly known as water pipe, bong is a smoking device generally used to smoke marijuana.

According to the British tabloid, Phelps was caught smoking pot (weed) on November last year, more than two months after his record-breaking performance at the Beijing Olympics.

“He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits. Michael ended up getting a little paranoid, though, because before too long he looked like he was nervous and ran out of the place,” the website’s source revealed.

Here’s the photo:

The picture above was allegedly taken at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.
