Olympian Louis Smith suspended over offensive video

Olympic medallist Louis Smith has been suspended for two months by British Gymnastics over a video which appears to show him mocking Islam.

The four-time Olympic medallist was found guilty of a breach of the organisation's Standards of Conduct by an independent panel while his friend, former gymnast Luke Carson, was issued a reprimand.

Smith has since apologised for the footage that appeared online last month and revealed he has received a number of death threats. The video allegedly shows him pretending to pray to Allah while laughing.

Louis Smith is currently touring as a celebrity guest on the Keep Dancing stage production after winning the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing in 2012.
