37% of Team GB medallists privately educated

More than a third of Team GB's medallists were educated at private school, new figures show.

The Sutton Trust's figures show that 37% of Team GB medallists went to private school in Britain, while around 27.5% of gold medal winners were privately educated.

The figures come in the wake of concerns about sport in state schools, and calls for an overhaul of school sports policy.
