Ennis-Hill out of Commonwealth Games

Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill has withdrawn from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer because she is pregnant.

The 27-year-old is expecting her first baby, although she still plans to defend her Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Games.

Fellow heptathlon champion Denise Lewis says it is hard to come back following the birth of a child, as BBC Sport's Natalie Pirks reports.
