Jessica Ennis says that she has yet to consider whether she will compete for Great Britain in the 2016 Rio Olympics following her golden success at London 2012.

Great Britain Olympic champion Jessica Ennis has admitted that she has yet to decide whether she will compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

The 26-year-old, who missed out on competing at Beijing 2008 due to injury, won Olympic gold in the heptathlon on Saturday, when she posted a new British record in the 100m hurdles event.

"We've not even thought about [Rio]," Ennis told The Star. "That's something I'll think about in the next few weeks.

"I want to enjoy this moment now. Four years is a long way away and lots can happen. I'll just take each year as it comes."

Meanwhile, the Sheffield-born athlete recently revealed that she may take up the 100m hurdles after she has finished competing in the heptathlon.
