Peng Shuai, the missing Chinese tennis star, said she is “safe and well,” after going unheard from for three weeks following a recent sexual assault allegation against a Chinese government official.

Some are not fully convinced of her well-being from the statement, photos and videos provided.

The International Olympic Committee said in a statement that President Thomas Bach spoke with Shuai for 30 minutes Sunday in a video call.

“Peng Shuai thanked the IOC for its concern about her well-being. She explained that she is safe and well, living at her home in Beijing, but would like to have her privacy respected at this time. That is why she prefers to spend her time with friends and family right now. Nevertheless, she will continue to be involved in tennis, the sport she loves so much,” the IOC statement read.

The statement also included a photo of Bach and Shuai on the video call and Peng smiling.

“I was relieved to see that Peng Shuai was doing fine, which was our main concern. She appeared to be relaxed. I offered her our support and to stay in touch at any time of her convenience, which she obviously appreciated,” said Emma Terho, the Chair of the IOC Athletes’ Commission, in the statement.

Peng’s three-week disappearance from the public caused major international concern of her well-being. Other sports stars and governments from various countries called for China to prove that she was safe.

The statement was followed by other multiple photos and videos being released of Peng on Twitter and a “WeChat Page” by a tennis tournament.

A spokesperson for the Women's Tennis Association told Reuters that the videos and photos were "insufficient" evidence of her safety, and do not fully address concerns. 

This promoted France's foreign minister to call on Chinese authorities to provide more proof of her well-being.

"I'm expecting only one thing: that she speaks," France's Jean-Yves Le Drian told LCI television.
