Jonnie Peacock: 'It's a huge honour to compete in the UK'

Cambridgeshire sprinter Jonnie Peacock has described the prospect of competing in London again as a "huge honour" as he prepares to try and win back his World Para-athletics Championship title.

The 24-year-old was forced to sit out the Games in Doha two years ago through injury, but is now back to full fitness.

Peacock won T44 100m gold in 2013 in Lyon, and will be hoping to replicate that success at the London Stadium on Sunday evening.

The way the Brtish public get behind Para sport is unlike anywhere else in the world.

It's a huge honour every time you get to compete in front of them and when you have thousands of people screaming - it just makes the whole thing ten times better.
