Albert Cheng King-hon

The radio host's Digital Broadcasting Corp went off air after he failed to reach a deal with fellow investors in the station amid claims of political interference. Still, it's not like losing his show is a new experience for the former lawmaker - it's the seventh time he has left a job as a radio presenter, and it looks like he may be back on air this week.

 

Mototaka Ikawa

The ex-head of Daio Paper is swapping Macau casinos for a Japanese prison after gambling away 5 billion yen (HK$495 million) of company money. He is appealing against his four-year sentence.

 

Lance Armstrong

A damning US Anti-Doping Agency report accused the seven-time Tour de France winner of systematic and long-term use of performance- enhancing drugs. Although Usada has slapped the Texan with a lifetime ban and stripped him of his titles, he remained defiant, labelling the report a "witch hunt". Most revealing were the details from 26 people, including 11 former teammates.
