Members of the public voted for 18 sports stars to be honoured on the 'Parade of Champions' and the first of those told our Sports Correspondent Steve Clamp how excited she is to be involved.

Mo Farah passed his biggest test of the year with flying colours as he claimed 5,000 metres victory over a strong field at the Sainsbury's Grand Prix at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.

The double Olympic champion faced a stiff challenge, with the world's two fastest 5,000 metres runners – Ethiopian pair Yenew Alamirew and Hagos Gebrhiwet – on the start line.
