Great Britain's Richard Whitehead says that mind games will be in force ahead of tonight's T42 100m final.

Great Britain's double amputee sprinter Richard Whitehead has insisted that he will be on top of his game for the final of the men's T42 100m final.

The Paralympic gold medallist qualified for tonight's final by finishing third in the heat at the Olympic Stadium this morning.

"I want to be part of it tonight and I will deliver with some mind games," Whitehead told Channel 4.

The British hopeful is not favourite for the event because of his slight disadvantage of being unable to start quickly due to having both his legs amputated above the knee.
