There is no hierarchy when it comes to abuse around a woman's body image - whether you're a celebrity or the average woman on the street. But I find it utterly shocking that these Olympians are viewed as fair game for online abusers. Worse, that the abuse has affected a gold-medal athlete so badly, she may have altered how she looks to fit an image of what other people think she should look like.

I've had the privilege of working with the swimming team since my retirement and its exciting time for British swimming; lots of young athletes are now coming through to their peak so it will be a hard-fought battle in the pool this summer.
