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.
– Alla Glushchenko, Yelena Isinbayeva's spokesperson
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.]
