Bedfordshire's London 2012 Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford's announced he'll be retiring at the end of the athletics season.

Rutherford's gold on "Super Saturday" in 2012 was an historic moment - as he became the first British man to win the event since 1964.

He went on to add a bronze medal in Rio four years later - but now says an ankle injury's too painful to keep going.

Rutherford, who lives in Woburn Sands near Milton Keynes, hopes to end his 13-year career at the European Championships in Berlin in August.

He's also planning on appearing at upcoming Diamond League meetings in Birmingham and London.
