The 18-year-old runner, who faced accusations of being a man after winning gold at the world championships in Berlin last month, has been given a glossy makeover.'I am who I am and I am proud of myself. I see it all as a joke, it doesn't upset me. God made me the way I am and I accept myself...'
The controversy over her gender, which has angered many in South Africa, emerged after she took gold in the women's 800 metres.
