Great Britain's Goldie Sayers reveals that she will have surgery on her injured elbow.

Team GB's Goldie Sayers has confirmed that she will undergo surgery to correct an elbow injury.

The 30-year-old damaged ligaments during the women's javelin semi-final at the London Olympics earlier this week.

Having considered all of the options available to her, the Newmarket-born athlete has decided to go under the surgeon's knife.

"I gave it everything to the point where I ripped a ligament off the bone, so I do need surgery now," she told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. "Whenever you have an injury, it does change the mechanics [of throwing] slightly.

"There'll be trials and tribulations along the way but I've had all sorts of surgery so I know the score on that."

Sayers recently revealed that she intends to compete at the 2016 Games in Brazil.
