Great Britain's Nicola Adams has revealed that she suffered from a debilitating back injury last year on her way to becoming Olympic champion.
"I spent three months in bed last year not being able to move because of a back injury, and when I first came back to training I went from being able to do 200 sit-ups a day to not being able to do a single one," she told Sky Sports News.
"I thought to myself, 'how am I going to get back to being a fighter?' But I stuck to my gameplan and listened to all the doctors and the physios and did what I was told and look at me now - I'm Olympic champion."
Before their bout on Thursday Adams had been beaten by twice by Cancan in World Championship finals.
