IAAF president hopes Semenya will return to track


IAAF president Lord Coe says he hopes Caster Semenya returns to compete in athletics “within the regulations”.

The 800m world and Olympic champion will not race at the World Athletics Championships in Doha because of new rules governing testosterone levels in female athletes.

Semenya has said she will continue her appeal against the governing body’s decision.

Coe said the rules ensured a “level playing field” for all athletes.
