THIS is world champion Jessica Ennis when she is not performing well!

The Sheffield heptathlete continued her comeback from injury in Manchester, winning the long jump and taking silver in the javelin.

But she wasn’t impressed with her display in the Northern Outdoor championships: “It wasn’t brilliant. I’d have liked to have jumped better. I was a bit flat; there are things to work on. It was good to jump but I wasn’t overly happy with the distance. But I’m back into heavier training now for the World Championships.
