Jessica Ennis, whose heptathlon success kicked off an historic hat-trick of golds in a single Olympics athletics session, gave her reaction to her victory to the BBC:
I am so shocked. I can't believe it. I honestly can't believe I've won.
All my hard work and the disappointment of Beijing. I can't believe it.
(Thanks to) everyone who's supported me. I'm so happy.
