After another massive victory in the heptathlon at a meeting in Gotzis, Austria, Sheffield’s finest chose an unusual way to unwind.

A wheelie bin was filled with iced water – and after completing the gruelling event, Jess simply climbed inside.

Coach Tony Minichiello and UK Athletics staff looked on amazed as Jess chilled her tootsies and munched on a banana.

Jess had shortened the odds of her taking the Olympic gold medal in London next year by winning her first heptathlon of the year by a huge margin of 251 points.

The world champion’s score of 6,790 points was 33 below her best and only 41 behind Denise Lewis’s British record, despite the fact she had missed seven weeks of training with an undiagnosed ankle injury.
