Swimmer Rebecca Adlington has revealed the extent of thousands of cruel Twitter taunts which led to her having surgery to reduce the size of her nose.

The four-time Olympic medallist said she had “fallen into fame” and never expected the recognition – and criticism – that would follow.

She said she had been forced to block close to 4,000 Twitter trolls who subjected her to vile abuse about her nose and overall appearance.
