Wales' Jazz Carlin has secured silver in the 800m freestyle at the European Championships.

Carlin was defending champion but had to settle for silver in 8:23.52 behind Boglarka Kapas of Hungary, who won in 8:21.40.

I would've loved to have got the gold, but I raced tough. It's about working hard and to race hard. You'll get those close races in Rio."

Cardiff City FC have unveiled head coach Paul Trollope as the successor to Russell Slade.

Trollope, who is also a coach with the Welsh National team, first joined the Bluebirds in March 2015.

He will retain his title of Head Coach but will oversee all first team affairs.

I am delighted for Paul on his new appointment. He is young, full of ideas, extremely hard working and this is an opportunity for him to establish his credentials further.

I believe Paul will improve the team in several areas. In particular, I hope he will lead the team to play an attractive style of football that Cardiff City fans love.

We hope that under Paul’s leadership, Cardiff City will return to the Premier League. I’d like to thank him for what he’s done for us so far whilst wishing him the best of luck for the future. He has our full support.

– Vincent Tan, Owner of Cardiff City Football Club

Trollope said he would remain part of the Wales set-up until at least after Euro 2016.

I'm due to meet up with Wales in preparation for the Euros and that doesn't change.

I've got full belief that I've got time to prepare properly for pre-season and the new season ahead.

After that I think there will be a discussion moving forward with Chris Coleman, the FAW and the club whether it's viable (to stay).
