"Paul - Three suggestions," she replied to the vile comment. "1. Add a picture of yourself to your Twitter profile 2. Think about what you Tweet before you write 3. I'll leave you to guess this one."

Naga has previously spoken about dealing with trolls in the past and the impact it's had on her mental health. Appearing on BBC Radio Five Live, she explained: "I have rather, shall we say, an assertive way, of dealing with people who abuse me on Twitter. I don't like it, I won't put up with it."
