Russian long jumper Darya Klishina has revealed she was offered $200,000 dollars a month to become a high-class escort in the US. 

The 29 year-old, who won a silver medal at the 2017 World Championships in London, made the shocking revelation to a Russian media outlet. 

She told "I was offered to be an escort. The message came from an unknown person from the US, in a direct message.

"It was several months ago, maximum half a year. I was not expecting something like this.

"He just wrote a direct message to me on Instagram.

"I’m not somebody who swears at people and just answered him back with ‘sorry but I am not interested in this offer’.

"He then got back to me saying: 'Wait, don't you refuse straight away. You don't even know the conditions and the amount I’m offering'.

The unknown man then offered her $200,000 dollars (£164,000) per month.

She added: "I then thought: "Do I really look like a woman who would agree to something like this?"
