Olympic taekwondo champion Jade Jones has been presented with a special Manchester United shirt at Old Trafford.

United fan Jones, 19, from Flintshire, showed off her gold medal to the crowd and received a shirt emblazoned with "Jones 2012" on Saturday.

She watched United beat Wigan Athletic 4-0 with her brother Luke and grandfather Martin Foulkes.

Jones said: "It was great. It was the first time I'd watched them live."

She added: "I had a really good time, and I got to go on the pitch with my medal."

Jones, nicknamed the Headhunter, took gold in the taekwondo 57kg category on 9 August at London 2012.

She has been a life-long United fan and trains in Manchester.

Her appearance at Old Trafford came a day after she joined Wales' Olympic and Paralympic athletes for a homecoming parade in Cardiff.
