The spokesperson for the Russian pole vault world champion Yelena Isinbayeva has told ITV News the athlete is not against gay people and that her comments have been misunderstood.
The journalists twisted her words, she didn't say she was anti-gay.
Yelena's a sportswoman, she's not a politician.
She's only against gay propaganda, not against gay people - they can live how they want.
We have no idea what is going on in the UK so we have no comment about her resigning [from her role as youth Olympic ambassador for the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.]
