Sheffield's Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill has pulled out of this Thursday's Diamond League meeting in Oslo as she continues her recovery from an Achilles injury.

The 27-year-old pulled out of Saturday's Women's Athletic League Meeting in Edinburgh on the advice of the UKA medical team but she had been scheduled to compete in the Norwegian capital.

A statement released by her manager revealed Ennis-Hill's foot has been responding well to treatment but she has been advised to rest it further rather than risk aggravating it with only two months to go until the World Championships in Moscow.
