Former Loughborough athlete Paula Radcliffe has hit out at newspaper reports that she has been "ruled out" of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Radcliffe is reportedly struggling with a foot problem, which has casted doubts over whether she will compete in the marathon in London.
The Mail on Sunday has reported Radcliffe "will be forced to make the heartbreaking decision this week to withdraw from the London Olympics", prompting the athlete to tweet the following:
Hurt by dailymail & whoever thinks know my situation, before even do final test run. Not looking good but my heartbreaking news to break!
UK Athletics says the world record holder remains a part of the Great Britain team.
A UKA spokesperson said: "Paula is still in the team. No decision has been taken and we are continuing to monitor and assess the situation."
