Dwain Chambers has arrived back with a bronze medal tonight but had no comment about his status as a future Olympic athlete.

Commenting on the British Olympic Association's legal bid, Nicola Sanders, one of the 4x400m medal winning quartet from yesterday said:

"We all like Dwain, he's a great guy but I think the BOA by-law should stand and the rest of the world should come up to our level."

Meanwhile Yamile Aldama, the world indoor triple jump champion at the age of 39 said she was delighted at her success but was fed up with the issue of 'Plastic Brits' that had dominated headlines over the weekend. She said:

'I'm not bothered, I feel British and if people do not like that there's nothing I can do, the British Gov't gave me citizenship.'
