Team GB's golden girl Jessica Ennis has fulfilled her dream of being crowned the women's Olympic heptathlon champion.
Four years after injury forced her out of the Beijing Games, the queen of Sheffield secured the Olympic gold with a winning run in the 800m, the seventh and final discipline.
Teachers from her old school have paid tribute to Jessica Ennis, English teacher Ian Rouse taught Ennis media studies and said:
You would never have known the hours she was putting in with her athletics unless someone told you.
She was very bright, very hard-working and she made a great contribution to the school.
I don't think many people did realise she was putting so many hours into her sport.
She's just a smasher.
Chemistry teacher Zoe Thomas said:
She really is an inspiration.
We've got a big poster of her in the gym. There's a massive picture in the school as well. They all know her and there's a lot of pride
She's lovely - totally unaffected but a total professional. Such an impressive person
