Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill will miss this weekend's British Championships in Birmingham with an ankle injury.

Jessica Ennis-Hill has pulled out of the British Championships in Birmingham this weekend with an ankle injury.

The 27-year-old has not competed since winning the heptathlon gold at the Olympics last summer.

The Sheffield-born athlete missed a Women's Athletic League meeting in Edinburgh with an Achilles problem earlier this summer, but UK Athletics says that her recovery is progressing.

Ennis-Hill's coach is optimistic that she will be fit enough to compete in the World Championships in Moscow later this year.
