The problem is compounded by the fact that locals have bestowed celebrity status on him (and the family), whereby gifts are showered upon them (which I would say is the main motivating factor behind this abuse). He isn't seen as the oddity he would be over here - rather as a mythological figure reincarnated (I said they were superstitious).
I recognise steroid abuse, I've seen the effects on others.
If this kid was older and was producing hormones for himself, and exercising, he would be extremely muscular. As he is still a child, and consuming more food than he is using, this appears as fat.
I fear this is a cover-up which everyone knows about, but since national pride is at stake, no one speaks of.
Such a tragedy, he will probably be dead by puberty.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
