London Spy

Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis has backed fellow British heptathlete Jessica Ennis to cope with the pressure of home expectation at the 2012 Olympics.

In an interview conducted exclusively for Eurosport, UPS London 2012 ambassador, Lewis, told Steve Ryder that Ennis has the right temperament to use the home support to her advantage.

Lewis, who won Olympic gold in Sydney in 2000, also talks about the unique challenges that heptathletes have to cope with during an Olympics and talks about her own experiences at the Games.

She also picks out a British athlete who she reckons could be a surprise package at the Games.
