Just after being crowned World Cup champion, Chinese table tennis player Zhang Jike was fined his entire prize fund of 45,000 USD for celebrating a bit too aggressively. PARTY HARD.
Right after he beat fellow Chinese player Ma Long in Düsseldorf, Zhang decided to celebrate by kicking some shit, ripping his shirt off and throwing it into a crowd of screaming fans like the fucking star he is.
Unfortunately, The International Table Tennis Federation was not very amused, and the 26-year-old player was stripped of his prize money.
“I am very sorry for what I did,” Zhang was quoted as saying in the ITTF website.
“It was not acceptable behavior and I am sorry. This was a perfect victory, I have been under a great deal of pressure, with people questioning my form.”
