A Judoka from Norwich has been selected for Team GB's Paralympic squad.

Jonathan Drane is part of a four-man team that will travel to Rio for the games in September.

Drane previously fought for the GB sighted squad before he was diagnosed with a visual impairment.

It’s a real honour to represent your country at the Paralympics and it’s pretty special to be celebrating my selection alongside some of the guys that I train alongside every day.

Injury has been a challenge but I’m back in training and am really focussed on making sure my rivals know they’re up against a truly formidable opponent in Rio.

– Jonathan Drane
