Jessica Ennis-Hill has been practising her latest sporting role at home by subjecting her four-year-old son to sudden bursts of adjectives about the most inspiring sporting moments of the year. The 2012 Olympic heptathlon champion has turned sports presenter and her first show will be broadcast this evening.

“It’s completely out of my comfort zone,” she says, so she used her son as a stand-in audience. “I’ve been practising on my little boy Reggie at home, delivering random lines about sport and what happened this year and he’s kind of like, ‘Mummy, what are you talking about? What are you doing?’ And I’m saying,

‘Do I sound good?’ ”
