No reporters, no fans, Yao made an abrupt landing at Beijing's Capital International airport. Only his agent and officials from the national basketball team receive him
at the VIP room.

In shirt of sky-blue, Yao appeared to be very relaxed. An operation on ankle
seems making no hindrance on walking.

Yao was back to attend a bundle of sports as well as commercial activities, including training and matches of the national team, NBA China training camp and the premiere of a movie Yao participates in acting.
