BOXING presenter Anna Woolhouse has hit back at vile body-shaming trolls after receiving a barrage of horrendous abuse and death threats.

Sick Twitter users branded the Sky Sports journalist a "skinny slut" and "talentless t**t" after her coverage of Dillian Whyte's dramatic points win over Joseph Parker on Saturday.

She was also subjected to sexism and mocked over her late brother, who died in a bus crash in Malaysia in April 2014.

Woolhouse tweeted: "Over the past couple of days I’ve experienced some of the down sides to social media.

"It saddens me people hide behind their keyboards actively going out their way to say vile comments.

"Trolling is unacceptable and there should be consequences for their actions. Rant over ?"

If at first you don’t succeed…. take some weight off the bar ???? Not going to lie, today was HARD after the weekend ?? ?? So instead of easing into the week gently I decided to test myself attempting to clean 50kg ?? 45kg was fine but the extra 5kg was too much, I couldn’t quite get under the bar enough ?. Anyway, something to work on me thinks. Also, scroll ?? to meet my latest gym trainer, he’s pretty cute ? ? #cleans #mondaymotivation #training #gym #fitness #strongnotskinny #fitspo #instafit #dog #mrchip #fitfam #cute #dachshundsofinstagram #dachshund #pushyourself
