LONDON (AFP) - Fictional boy wizard Harry Potter made his first appearance in seven years on Monday, featuring as a nearly 34-year-old with grey hairs in a new short story by author J.K. Rowling.

In an article on her "Pottermore" website that is supposedly written by a gossip columnist, Harry and his friends reunite for a tournament of the broomstick-riding game quidditch.

Harry's redheaded friend Ron Weasley is said to be thinning on top while Ron's wife Hermione and Harry's wife Ginny all feature in the 1,500-word story.

Millionaire author Rowling meanwhile gives a teaser when she writes that Harry sports a new scar on his cheek to go with the lightning-shaped one on his forehead.
