Caster Semenya has lost her landmark legal case against athletics’ governing body, which means she will have to take medication to reduce her testosterone if she wants to keep running on the international stage.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport's secretary general, Matthieu Reeb, announced the decision, saying that, although their panel found that the differences or disorders of sex development (DSD) regulations are discriminatory, a majority found that on the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, the rules are 'necessary, reasonable and proportionate means of achieving the IAAF's aim of preserving the integrity of female athletics in the restricted events'.
