Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes 'cut herself daily'

Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes has spoken of how she self-harmed as she struggled to overcome injuries she thought would end her career.

Dame Kelly, who lives in Kent, won gold in the 800m and 1,500m competitions in Athens in 2004.

She said just a year earlier she was "cutting" herself regularly "to release the anguish" she experienced.
