Olympic champion Jessica Ennis has high hopes for the British athletics team at the Birmingham Grand Prix this weekend, and says she will be rooting for them while watching at home on TV.

The heptathlon gold medalist has struggled with an ankle injury this season that has stopped her from competing. 

But the 27-year-old was full of support for the British team ahead of the Grand Prix final on Sunday.

Ennis took to Facebook, to say: "I will be watching all my fellow team mates on TV this weekend competing in the Birmingham GP – hope they all go well and look forward to competing with them soon. #britishathleticsteam"

Mo Farah, Greg Rutherford, Christine Ohuruogu and Dai Greene are among the British athletes competing at the weekend. The crowd, along with Ennis, will be right behind them all the way.

Ennis was expected to make her comeback this weekend at the European Cup Combined Events Super League meeting in Estonia, but disappointedly had to withdraw following more problems with her ankle.

Although her recent tweet suggests she expects to be joining back up with the British athletics team soon, so we hope that it isn't too serious for the Olympic gold medalist.
