Derek Redmond's father has been chosen to be a torch bearer for this year's London Olympics.
Jim Redmond and his son delivered an iconic Olympic moment at Barcelona 1992 as they crossed the finish line during a 400m race together.
Derek tore a hamstring in the semi-final and Jim entered the track from the stands to help his son complete the race.
Jim recalled to The Sun: "During the first 100m we thought he'd finish in the first three, then his leg went but, Derek being Derek, he would never give up.
"We finished the race jointly. I didn't realise 20 years later it would still be talked about, I'm delighted, honoured and very, very proud. Derek is very happy I was chosen. It means he is still recognised too."
The relay of the torch will end on July 27, the date of the opening ceremony for London 2012.
