Retirement a possibility for Ennis-Hill after Rio silver

Jessica Ennis-Hill could "possibly" retire after taking the silver medal in the heptathlon at Rio 2016, the athlete has said.

The 30-year-old, who gave birth to her son Reggie just two years ago, hinted that this Olympics could be her last competition.

Asked if this would be her last, she said: "Possibly" and said she would goaway to spend time with her family before making a decision.

Speaking to the BBC, she said: "I am really emotional. I have got to go away now to make a big decision as to what I do. I don't want to cry on TV but these years have been amazing so just really proud."

Support for Ennis-Hill's achievement came from far and wide.
