Caster Semenya’s bronze victory at the IAAF World Championships has sparked another debate about her gender. 

But Semenya says she has no time for ongoing discussions about her hyperandrogenism -- a medical condition characterised by excessive levels of male sex hormones.

The renewed debate comes after Scottish athlete Laura Muir finished seconds behind Semenya despite leading for much of the race.

The IAAFsaid Semenya's condition gives her an unfair advantage over rivals.

The BBC has faced strong crititism   after it aired a debate questioning the athlete's condition.

"I have no time for nonsense," said Semenya.

"Like I said before, my focus is more now for me getting healthy and compete."

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the exact same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove
    me from that service? Thanks!

    You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to
    be actually something which I feel I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and very large for me.
    I'm looking forward for your subsequent publish, I'll try to get
    the hold of it!
