Former Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill has announced her retirement from athletics.
Ennis-Hill won heptathlon gold at the 2012 London Olympics and returned from having a baby to defend her title in Rio, only to miss out by 35 points to Belgium's Nafissatou Thiam.
She had hinted at retirement after winning the silver medal in Brazil but she admits it was 'one of the toughest decisions I've had to make'.
Announcing her retirement on Instagram, Ennis-Hill wrote: "From my first world title in Berlin 2009 to Rio 2016 I'm so fortunate to have had such an amazing career within the sport I love and this has been one of the toughest decisions I've had to make.
"But I know that retiring now is right. I've always said I want to leave my sport on a high and have no regrets and I can truly say that. I want to thank my family and incredible team who have spent so much of their time supporting me and enabling me to achieve my dreams.
"Also a huge thank you to all those people who have supported and followed my career over the years."
