UK athletes give advice to the next generation

The Olympics are over, but the sporting madness is still going strong in the UK.

Our Olympic and Paralympic heroes were given celebration parades and parties in Manchester and London, drawing thousands of people onto the streets to show their support.

But the life of a world class athlete is obviously not all parades and medals. There is lots of hard work and dedication involved, but it can also be a lot of fun.

Our athletes spend years training to be the best they can be. Check out the video to see what advice they have for people wanting to get into sport!

Newsround also caught up with some kids who went down to catch a glimpse of their Rio heroes and asked them how the Olympics and Paralympics has inspired them!
