Jade Jones: 500 in Flint cheer double Olympic champion

More than 500 family and friends gathered in Jade Jones' home town in Flintshire to watch her successfully defend her Olympic taekwondo title.

Crowds at Flint Mountain Hotel and Flint Town Football Club cheered her on into the early hours of Friday.

The 23-year-old won a thrilling final 16-7, defeating Spain's Eva Calvo Gomez in the -57kg category in Rio.

"To be double Olympic champion already is crazy to be honest," she told BBC Sport.
