Jessica Ennis: Tears of joy for Olympic heptathlon winner

Great Britain's Jessica Ennis cries tears of joy after winning the gold medal in the heptathlon at the London 2012 Olympics.

Ennis said the support of the home crowd helped her win the final event, the 800m, but admits carrying the hopes and expectations of the nation was a huge pressure.

The 26-year-old's total of 6,955 points was a huge 327 clear of world champion Tatyana Chernova in second and 337 better than Lyudmyla Yosypenko in bronze.
