Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai has reportedly appeared as a guest at a tennis tournament in Beijing, according to state media footage.

State-affiliated media posted a clip said to be of Peng on Twitter, the latest to apparently show her.

Governments, tennis officials and players have voiced concerns about her wellbeing.

Two weeks ago she made sexual assault allegations against a former China vice-premier.

Since then she has not been in direct contact with the Women's Tennis Association.

On Saturday WTA chief Steve Simon said it was unclear from the first two clips published "if she is free and able to make decisions and take actions on her own, without coercion or external interference", calling the video "insufficient" evidence of her safety.

The UK Foreign Office meanwhile issued a statement saying it was "extremely concerned" and called on China to "urgently provide verifiable evidence of her safety and whereabouts".

A clip published on Sunday by the editor of the Global Times – a Chinese state-affiliated media organisation – said she is "at the opening ceremony of a teenager tennis match final".

It is the third clip published on that account, with the previous two purportedly showing Peng having dinner with her coach and friends in a restaurant.

Reuters news agency reports the event organisers also published official photos online showing Peng on the social app WeChat.

In a video clip posted on the Twitter account of a fiercely loyal Communist Party news editor, Peng Shuai can be seen standing alongside other dignitaries, and smiling and waving as her name is announced.

The short clip is said to have been filmed on Sunday morning and follows two other short videos released by state media, including one of the former Wimbledon doubles champion with friends in a restaurant, offered as proof that she is not under any form of duress.

But they've only raised further questions, over apparent editing and their seemingly staged nature, and so far there's been no let up in the calls from the Women's Tennis Association, a number of global tennis stars as well as governments, for proof that Peng Shaui genuinely free to speak and act as she chooses.
