He said: “Parents want their kids to be like you when you’re an Olympian.
“They have an opinion on what you should be like and I almost have to act in a way they expect me to act, that gets me in trouble.
“I shouldn’t be relied on in that way. I’m human, I make mistakes.”

Former Strictly winner Louis was suspended from gymnastics for two months for mocking Islam after appearing in a video with a friend drunkenly pretending to pray.
The footage showed him yelling “Allahu Akbar,” an Islamic phrase meaning “God is the greatest”.
He issued a grovelling apology, telling his fans on Twitter at the time: “I am deeply sorry for the recent video you may have seen. What I did was wrong.”

Louis was als blasted for posting a provocative photo of US star Carly Patterson, then 16, on Instagram, four months before the Islam controversy.
He shared the image of the athlete’s bum taken during the 2004 Olympics in Athens with the caption: “My sport has its moments.”

The reality TV star confirms he was taken to a disciplinary over sharing the “sexist” post – which he still believes was an overreaction by fans.
He said: “The last time I got in trouble was when I posted a photo of girl’s bum and my governing body of sport decided to take me to a disciplinary for it, which I thought was over the top.


“I don’t like beef, I don’t like controversy. I just like to try and live my life.”
