Fans urged Caster Semenya not to quit athletics after her suspicious tweet that  followed the loss of her appeal against regulations restricting testosterone levels in female runners, which referred to knowing when to walk away.

Semenya will have to take medication to reduce her testosterone level if she is to continue competing at 800m.

The Olympic champion, 28, is confirmed for that distance in the Diamond League season opener in Doha on Friday.

One of the fans’ replied to the tweet saying “never give up” while another urged her to “fight until the end”.

But Semenya posted another tweet shortly afterwards that read: “That’s me and will always be. I’m finished.”

However, Athletics South Africa president Aleck Skhosana appeared to play down suggestions Semenya could quit by describing her as “an outstanding athlete who has a continuous hunger for great results” adding that Semanya’s ruling justifies discrimination.
