It was a shocking for the millions of Michael Phelps's fan world wide over the photograph in which he was seen with a marijuana pipe in his hand. This is not the first time that such an incident happened that involved him.In 2004 he was charged with drunken driving as well.
We make the sports icons our idols and do worship them like God. We must keep in mind that although they are supreme in their respective fields but at the same time they are still humans and most of the time young.
We must have the tolerance and the heart to pardon them on such deeds, and try hard to inculcate in our minds and the minds of the die hard fans of all the great deeds and achievements they had achieved and not the low times that are although few but are a part of a normal human being.
