Jess Ennis-Hill has offered her support for her Great Britain team-mates at the European Cup Combined Events Super League in Tallinn, Estonia after her withdrawal from the event which gets underway this weekend.

Ennis hasn't competed since she claimed gold at the London Olympic Games last summer, and has so far been forced to pull out of three consecutive events with a problematic Achilles injury.

That hasn't stopped her from offering her support for training partners John Lane and Karla Drew, both of whom will be in action in Estonia in the Decathlon and Heptathlon respectively.

She wrote on Twitter: "Good luck to my training partners @85_lane & @KarlaLDrew and the GB team at the Euro Cup combined events meeting! Gutted I'm not competing!"

The Heptahalon which Ennis-Hill has opted to sit out as she looks to keep her preparations for the World Championships in Moscow later this summer on course gets underway in Estonia on Saturday morning.
