British gymnast and Olympic medallist Louis Smith has faced some backlash after he seemingly sexualised a 16-year-old athlete on Instagram.
The 27-year-old posted a zoomed in photograph of US gymnast Carly Patterson's bum, with the caption 'My sport has its moments', along with an incredibly creepy tongue pulling emoji.
