The London 2012 champion and world record holder can add another gold to his honours on Saturday in the shot putt. The gold medal is the seventh by the Great Britain and they are leading the medal table in day three.

“I’m overwhelmed. It’s not the event I’ve been practising. I’m probably a bit too big for discus at the moment,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.

“I’m built for shot put and you’ll see that Saturday. I’ve got something special.

“This is such a special place with so many memories. I wanted to give the crowd a gold medal.”
