Yarnold wants to inspire children

Sochi skeleton gold medallist Lizzy Yarnold says she wants to get into schools and inspire a new generation of British athletes.

The 25-year-old from Sevenoaks says the Olympic gold medal from her winning performance in Russia belongs to everyone, and wants to encourage young athletes to "stay determined" as they try to achieve their goals.

Yarnold claimed British skeleton gold for the second successive Winter Olympics, after Amy Williams also won at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
