SHANGHAI (AP) - Retired basketball star Yao Ming, whose career was cut short by injury, has started classes at Jiatong University, one of the top universities in his hometown Shanghai.

He joked to reporters Monday after his first day of classes that “the teacher showed me some mercy and did not leave me any homework.”

The former Houston Rockets center, who retired four months ago because of chronic injuries to his left foot, is studying mathematics, English and modern Chinese history, hoping they will aid his business career.
