CAPE TOWN – Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa has described the Swiss Federal Court ruling against Caster Semenya as an injustice.

The two-time Olympic champion lost an appeal against the restriction of testosterone in female athletes.

Semenya has been fighting last year’s ruling by the Court of Arbitration, which said she should take medication to reduce her testosterone levels before she can compete.
