Young athletes at the University of Bath sports training village reacted with joy at Lizzy Yarnold's victory in the women's skeleton - Britain's first gold of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Celebrities and politicians have congratulated Ms Yarnold for her win, after Jenny Jones clinched Britain's first medal of the Winter games, winning bronze in the snowboard slopestyle.
Lizzy Yarnold, Britain's first gold medallist at the 2014 Sochi Games, said she was "so chuffed" to win the women's skeleton and that it was "lovely" her victory happened on Valentine's Day.
She told the BBC: "I don't think it's going to sink in for a long time...[on the fourth and last run] I was totally relaxed and enjoyed it, it was a bit of a messy run, I'm so thrilled I'm here."
"As an athlete you give up so much but on a day like today, it's so worth it," she added.
Yarnold added that she wanted to "show the world" she was capable of winning the gold medal.
Team GB's short track speed skater Jonathan Eley, ice skater Penny Coomes and short track speed skater Richard Shoebridge have tweeted:
