Yo, Australia

Rocky apologizes for bringing testosterone to your continent:

Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has pleaded guilty to importing and possessing prohibited imports in Australia, Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio reported Tuesday.

The actor, famous for his starring role in the "Rocky" and " Rambo" films, apologized for having the banned imports, Human Growth Hormone and testosterone, when he visited Sydney to promote a film earlier this year.

A Sydney court heard Stallone did not know he was breaking the law in Australia.

....His lawyer, Philip Boulten, told the court Stallone needed the substances to treat a medical condition.

Boulten said the actor was mortified by the charges, and his apology to the court was heartfelt.
