SYDNEY (AFP) - A "dazed" Ian Thorpe was discovered by police in a Sydney street in the early hours of Monday and taken to hospital, according to reports about the troubled swim star.

Thorpe, 31, was taken to hospital for the second time in as many weeks after being spotted in a suburban street in southern Sydney at about 3am, according to Ten News.

A 14-year-old boy raised the alarm after hearing a noise outside his family home and seeing Thorpe attempting to gain entry to a van in the driveway, Ten said.

He was reportedly "dazed" and under the influence of something, the network reported.
