Heartening text touches Peacock
- From the section Disability Sport
Great Britain's Jonnie Peacock says a text he received from his mum about amputees wearing shorts at his former college highlights the impact the recent Paralympics have had on the country.
Peacock, who won gold in the T44 100m at London 2012, reveals he was "touched" after learning amputees at Cambridge Regional College were wearing shorts who had not done so before to show off their disabilities.
In an interview on BBC Breakfast, quadruple-gold medallist David Weir also says his now-famous shirt rip after winning the T54 800m was down to a "wardrobe malfunction".
