Caster Semenya says she will not defend her World Championship 800m title in September after a setback in her challenge to the restricting of testosterone levels in female runners.

But the South African said she would "continue her fight for human rights" despite her "disappointment".

Semenya has twice appealed against IAAF rules preventing her from running without medication.

But a ruling allowing her to compete has now been overturned.

The IAAF, has said "biology has to trump gender identity" after welcoming the decision to permit restrictions in testosterone levels of female runners.

Double Olympic champion Caster Semenya twice appealed against the new IAAF rule that prevents her from running in the 800m without medication.

A Swiss court had suspended the ruling, but that has now been lifted.

Eilish McColgan has responded to comments about her being "skinny" by saying: "Go body shame elsewhere."

The middle-distance runner, 28, says she is not surprised young women have cosmetic procedures "to fit what's deemed the 'ideal' body".

She said on Twitter: "I'm naturally small - always have been. Some people are just slim!

Caster Semenya says she has "never really felt very supported" by other women in sport.

South Africa's three-time world 800m champion will not defend her title in Doha in September after a setback in her challenge to the restriction of testosterone levels in female runners.

"I'm targeted because I'm undefeated," the 28-year-old said.

"Since I have been in sport, I have never really felt very supported, I've never felt recognised mostly by women."

Talking as the headline speaker at a women's conference in Johannesburg, Semenya added: "I think it comes more into the international stage when you see your own rivals come with this, what can I call it, these rude responses in terms of me competing against them."

Six-time Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix says female athletes will "no longer be financially penalised for having a child" after Nike changed its contracts for pregnant athletes.

In a letter shared by Felix on social media, Nike says it will "not apply any performance-related reduction" for 18 months if an athlete becomes pregnant.

Felix's daughter Camryn was born prematurely in November.

In May, she said Nike wanted to pay her 70% less after she became a mother.

American sprinter Christian Coleman is under investigation over concerns he may have missed three drugs tests.

If found guilty he would face an automatic one-year ban and would miss the World Championships in Qatar and the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.

He is alleged to have had three possible failures under the 'whereabouts' system in the last year.

Coleman is understood to be contesting at least one of those cases.
