British sailing great Ben Ainslie has indicated that he may yet compete at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Ainslie revealed after winning his fourth Olympic gold medal earlier this month that due to the physical demands of the sport he was unlikely to be at the games in Brazil.

But the 35-year-old has revealed that he is already reconsidering his decision.

"I'd love to be in Rio if it's possible," he told BBC Sport.

"The next Olympics are a long way off and the focus is on the America's Cup now.

"But the Olympics have been a huge part of my life and I'd like to be involved in the next Games."
