The athlete handed her gold medal to her wife Violet Raseboya after arriving at Johannesburg Airport following the row over her involvement in the Olympics.

Semenya, 25, who once had to undergo humiliating gender testing to prove she was female, took gold and set a new national record of one minute 55 seconds.

Johannesburg Airport was packed with fans, family and friends for the return of the athletes, but the biggest cheer and loudest singing was reserved for Semenya.

Semenya thanked fans who chanted her name - but, asked what she wanted to say to her critics, she answered in her deep voice: 'I do not have the time for them.'

She added: 'It's great to be here and receive such a welcome. I will always do my best. I hope that in four years' time there will be even more people to fill the airport.'
