Aleksandra the ace! Russian Gymnast Soldatova serves up scorching tennis video in her UNDERWEAR (VIDEO)
Russian gymnast Aleksandra Soldatova certainly knows how to keep herself in the headlines despite the break in sports after the multiple world champion posted a scorching video of her playing tennis in just her underwear.

Supple Soldatova posted the video in an attempt to get her fans to choose their favourite from two recent separate photoshoots, the first prancing around in just her underwear on a tennis court, and the second a more elegant catwalk-style clip donning sharp office attire.

It seems like her 432,000 followers were split between the two, with fellow gymnast Alla Shishkina accurately commenting: "First and second are excellent. Something tells me that men will choose the first and women the second"
