‘Are they really that big?': Russian swim star Subbotina snaps after fan’s Instagram question (PHOTOS)

‘Are they really that big?': Russian swim star Subbotina snaps after fan’s Instagram question (PHOTOS)
Russian synchronized swimmer Varvara Subbotina has snapped at a fan who asked if her “boobs are really that big,” telling them “to use their brains before asking stupid things.”

The four-time world champion was holding an Instagram Q&A session when she was startled by the bizarre question from one follower, who seemed desperate to know whether her breasts were the same size in real life as they appear in her social media snaps.

Are your boobs really that big or it’s just a photo effect?” the question read.


I just want to ask one question… are you serious, guys?” a disgruntled Subbotina replied.

Do you use your brain before asking such questions?” she added.

Earlier this year the 18-year-old admitted to having an “unhealthy” social media addiction which even affects her training.

The athlete, widely considered to be one of the most talented young synchronized swimmers in Russia, also noted that duet coach Tatiana Danchenko told her to be “more modest” while sharing pictures, some of which she found to be too revealing.
