If you’re wondering what other Team GB fave, the now retired Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill is up to, well look no further. And who’s she hanging out with? Oh just the family of multiple world squash champion and fellow Brit and Sheffield local Nick Matthew.

Lovely day @chatsworthofficial for the horse trials with @esmematthew and the kids ?

The world governing body of football gets it oh so wrong… again.

When your BFF is at the finish line…

The moment when you win your first full iron distance race, and your friend is there at the finish! (And been there over the years and all through the day.) There were definitely no tears from either of us! Promise! Can’t thank @stefhanson enough for her friendship, support and believing in me. It’s hard to sum up and put into words how special this moment was. I’m welling up again (oops I said no tears) just trying to write this. Incredible proud to have Stef as a friend and in my life over the past few years. Learnt so much from her and the incredible work she does and her amazing zest for life. I’m not sure what the sport of triathlon (particularly the women’s side) would do with out her and @witsupcom – and for that fact what I’d do either. THANK YOU!! . . . ?@bondispot . . #emotional #winner #thankyou #witsupwednesday #imoz #portmac #imaustralia #friendship #priceless #dontdiewondering #inpursuitofexcellence

Athletes are often injured but not this badly. British sprinters James Ellington and Nigel Levine are lucky to be alive after a head on collision with a car while on motorbikes in Tenerife. James is cataloguing his progress towards a return to his athletics career via social media.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones has a nickname. The Headhunter. Yet when the taekwondo athlete tries an assault course, this is what happens.
