Welsh Olympic athlete Hannah Mills has spoken of the "unbelievable" reception she's received back home after winning gold at Rio 2016.

In an interview with ITV Cymru Wales, Cardiff-born Mills - who started sailing at the age of eight - said: "It's been fantastic, especially from the younger kids... how involved everyone's been in the Rio Olympics".

The 28-year-old also spoke of her "relief" at winning gold, adding: "You put everything into this four-year campaign... and you just really hope and pray that you've done everything in your preparation, that you can come away where you want to - and for us, that was the top of the podium".

Mills and her sailing partner Saskia Clark already knew they'd done enough to win gold for Team GB due to their 20-point lead.

They only had to finish the women's 470 event to secure the top spot, but faced an agonising wait after the raced was postponed due to a lack of wind.
