Chinese swimmer Sun Yang has responded to Australia's 400m freestyle gold medalist Mack Horton's "drug cheat" insult on August 6 (local time) saying that every athlete in the Olympic games should be respected, China's news portal cyol.com reports.
 
Mack Horton said "Sun Yang is just the drug cheat" during an interview, after beating Sun to win the just-concluded men's 400m freestyle race.

He also repeated his comments regarding Sun during the post-match press conference, despite Sun sitting right next to him.

Sun then bluntly responded, "That is just the gimmick of the Aussie swimmer. Every athlete in the Olympic Games is supposed to be respected."

This is not the first time Mack Horton has made such comments, but Sun appeared to bury the past and tried to shake hands to express his congratulations after the match.

Horton however just turned a blind eye, and ignored the gesture.
