On Friday, Semenya won the 800m race at the opening leg of the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Doha, which was her first race since losing her appeal over a controversial gender ruling.

The win for Semenya could be her last over 800m ahead of new IAAF rules governing testosterone levels coming into operation on May 8.

The 28-year-old will have to take medication to reduce her testosterone level if she is to continue competing at 800m.

Semenya can appeal the CAS' decision at a Swiss tribunal within 30 days.
