Cape Town - South Africa's Caster Semenya had her fans in raptures when she won gold in the women's 800m final at the IAAF World Championship in London after a British journalist had goaded her over her gender ahead of the race.

Francine Niyonsaba once again had to settle for second place behind Semenya, herself running a very fast time of 1:55.92, with Ajee Wilson capping off an impressive season to finish in third place in a time of 1:56.65. Melissa Bishop, the silver medalist two years ago, finished in fifth place, with Angelika Cichocka in sixth and Charlene Lipsey in seventh.

Semenya, however, maintained her languid stride a few metres back before closing the gap, easing past both on the final bend and running clear.

Hitting the home straight, Wilson and Niyonsaba were neck and neck before Semenya moved smoothly outside the lead duo and motored through the line for a convincing victory.

Semenya, who stands to be awarded the 2012 Olympic gold medal after Russian victor Mariya Savinova was disqualified for doping, now has to await further meetings between the IAAF and CAS to discover if she again has to take testosterone suppressing medication.

Semenya, the defending Olympic champion and also world champion in 2009 and 2011, timed 1min 55.16sec, the fastest time of the year so far.
