Jade Jones was the first British athlete to become an Olympic taekwondo champion when she took gold at London 2012 at the age of 19 – a performance which earned her an MBE.
Four years later, the Welsh featherweight successfully defended her title at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games when she defeated Spain’s Eva Calvo in the final.
Jones, nicknamed ‘The Headhunter’ because she prefers to score points from her opponent’s head, was also a gold medallist in the -57kg category at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2015 European Games.
