Britain’s The Guardian newspaper has rejected a claim that it tricked South African athlete Caster Semenya into being interviewed by one of its reporters.
Semenya has threatened legal action against the newspaper for a so-called exclusive interview with her, and says the quotes in the article were obtained under false pretences.
She says she continues to refuse all interviews.
But The Guardian says its reporter was invited to speak to Semenya by her coach, Michael Seme. It says Semenya agreed to the interview.
