Katarina Johnson-Thompson defends her heptathlon gold for England at Commonwealth Games

The Daily Mirror:  Katarina Johnson-Thompson, 29, came into the final event, the 800m, still leading the younger rivals trying to snatch her title away

When it was over she was entitled to wear a smile bright enough to power the national grid.

Instead, Katarina Johnson-Thompson wiped away tears as she dedicated heptathlon gold to the memory of her nan, Mary.

Three years of injury misery had left her fearing her days of glory were gone. But on an extraordinary evening she not only put her career back on track by retaining her Commonwealth title.
