The 25-year-old shared pictures from her new photoshoot in which she put on black lingerie while sitting on a sink in her bathroom.
“How do you wash in the morning?” The former gymnast put captions on the photo and caused mixed reactions on her Instagram page.
“You are beautiful, like a Greek goddess,” wrote one user.
“You are always stunning,” added another person.
“What are you going to wash while sitting on your back?” another fan joked.
“You are incredibly beautiful,” was one comment.
Sevastyanova is one of the most talked about gymnasts in Russia. Her Instagram account has more than 453,000 followers.
In 2012 she was named the most beautiful sportswoman at the Summer Games.
A few years ago, she is said to have dated the Russian ice hockey star Alexander Ovechkin.
His breakup from tennis player Maria Kirilenko was attributed to Sevastyanova – Kirilenko canceled her engagement after pictures of her fiancé who spent time with the former gymnast surfaced on social media.
