Six-time gold medallist David Weir says he felt ‘stabbed in the back’ following the end of his Paralympics career.

Weir, 37, was unable to complete the marathon in Rio following a crash, days after announcing his retirement from the track.

“It is an individual sport and I realise that this time,” he said.

“I’ve always praised every athlete that’s put on a British vest in wheelchair racing and I sometimes feel like I’ve been stabbed in the back.

“I’ve always praised people for their performance and I’m never jealous of anyone.

“I want the team to do well and I want wheelchair racing to be successful,” he added.

Weir does not expand on his comments, but former Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson said he had talked about feeling "isolated" from the British team and unhappy with the set-up at the Paralympic Village.
