According the site swimswam: (http://swimswam.com/sun-yang-involved-in-physical-altercation-during-warm-up-misses-final/)

“China’s Sun Yang was absent from the final of the men’s 1500 freestyle, which is very suspicious in nature. It is unheard of to have a no-show at the World Championships, especially when an alternate could have swum in his place.
While we have been unable to contact anyone in Sun’s camp to confirm the nature of his withdrawal, we have confirmed with Brazilian sources that Sun Yang was involved in a physical altercation with a Brazilian female swimmer in the warmup pool prior to the finals session. The Brazilian team reported Sun.
Additionally, Sun was seen by several other swimmers exchanging heated words with a Brazilian coach after the incident.
There is no verification that this was the reason that Sun missed his race, however we do know that he was warming up for the session, so whatever caused him to withdraw was decided late in the day.

Update: The BBC is reporting that the Chinese Federation has given a “heart problem during warmups” as the official reason for Sun’s withdrawal from the 1500 free final.”

Doesnt matter that you have 100 back/free world champions in your team when your breast leg can only split 1:07 eeekkkk

Apparently “heart problem” is boiler plate used by Chinese Federation for any incident that may give them not so good reputation.
