London 2012 Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford has been selected for the Great Britain bobsleigh squad as they aim to qualify for the 2022 Winter Games.

Rutherford will attempt to become the first British athlete to win a medal at both the summer and winter Olympics should the team make it to Beijing.

The 34-year-old added bronze from the 2016 Games to the long jump gold he claimed on a memorable 'Super Saturday' in London.

"This has been a huge undertaking, going from a very retired former athlete to retraining in a new sport and qualifying for the team.

"A massive thank you to everyone who's helped thus far."

Rutherford, whose team continue to look for more financial backing on their self-funded Olympic journey, added: "We start competing in a couple of months' time with the medal dream very much alive."
