"This is Jay Cutler from Las Vegas.
I understand you have a packed house at the Fitness Festival in Gothenburg today.
Let me tell you this; I would have loved to be there and guestpose for you.
But; as you know, this week Toney Freeman was taken by the police in Sweden and brought in for questioning.
I have talked to Toney. He says that this happened just because he is a professional bodybuilder.
If this could happen to Toney Freeman, it could clearly also happen to me as the current Mr Olympia.
Having seen how this damaged Toney Freeman via the internet, I simply could not risk to experience the same.
So, based on advice given to me here in the US, I decided that I could not come to Sweden this time.
I know that I have dissapointed many of you. I am disappointed myself for what has happened.
But please try to understand my situation and what would have happened if I had received the same treatment as Freeman experienced.
If you do not understand me, I hope you can forgive me.
I know that the organisers have been working hard to bring in other guest posers.
Some of the guys you will see, may even be the future Mr Olympia some day.
But I will tell you this; none of them will beat me next September here in Las Vegas. Because I will take my 5th Mr Olympia title and be in my best shape ever.
Thank you very much and have a fantastic show."
