BBC Sport - Long jump champion Rutherford seeks skeleton Olympic gold

Rutherford 'serious about skeleton'

Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford tells BBC Sport's Nick Hope he was inspired by Lizzy Yarnold's Sochi 2014 gold medal-winning performance and plans to try out skeleton himself following this summer's Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Rutherford, who recently set a new - but controversial - British record, also says he "excited and daunted" about the prospect of becoming a father later this year.
