"Is idiocy sexually transmitted?" "Putin's mistress" is hounded after saying "the right of Russians to fly their flag"
Alina Kabayeva, the 2004 Athens Olympic champion in rhythmic gymnastics, who is called the mistress of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was hounded online for commenting on the decision of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG). The day before, the FIG allowed Russians to participate in international competitions, but without a flag and in the absence of ties to the national federation.
Kabayeva, 40, said that Russian athletes should have the right to compete under their own flag.
In the comments, users advised Alina to deal with the main cause of all the troubles, hinting at Putin's assassination.
Users also suggested that the former athlete had received such idiotic statements from her "lover".
Fans do not understand how Kabayeva, who is herself a symbol of the mixing of politics and sport, can make such statements.
