Detainees at a jail of East China's Zhejiang province complained that they have to eat vegetables every day after an Olympic champion was taken into custody a week ago.

Sun Yang, an Olympic swimming champion, was sent to the jail for a week on Nov 4 for driving without a license. To prevent the Olympic champion from gaining weight, prison managers took meat off the menu, making other detainees unhappy, one inmate told Wuhan Morning Post.
