Two-time Olympic medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill announces retirement from Athletics
Jessica Ennis-Hill has announced her retirement from athletics.
The two-time Olympic medallist won silver in the heptathlon at Rio 2016, and has revealed that she is happy to leave the sport on a high – although the decision has been ‘one of the toughest’ she has had to make.
The 30-year-old had hinted at retirement after the most recent Olympics, which she had competed in after having a child in the intervening four years from London 2012.
