Tributes Paid After Ennis-Hill Retires

/pages/sport/The chairman of athletics club Mansfield Harriers has paid tribute to Jessica Ennis-Hill who's announced her retirement.

The 30-year-old heptathlete says it is "one of the toughest decisions" she's ever had to make but "had always wanted to leave on a high".

Pat Carlan says Ennis-Hill, who won gold at London 2012, will leave a massive legacy in the sport.

He told Mansfield 103.2: “I got to meet her a few years ago when she came to present awards at a Mansfield Harriers presentation evening.

“She's a lovely lady and of course she's been a perfect role model and inspiration to others to give sport a go.”
