Double Olympic champion Caster Semenya, burst on to the scene in 2009 when she won the women’s 800m world title by a stunning margin, shortly after the track officials from world governing body said she would undergo gender verification tests.
The 31 year-old offered to show her vagina to track officials when she was just 18 years old to prove she was a female.
