31 May 2015 / 17:08

Jessica Ennis-Hill is keeping future options open as her comeback continues and Mark Cavendish maintains his red-hot form in the countdown to the Tour de France. Here's our review of the last 24 hours:

  • Jessica Ennis-Hill 'reasonably happy' as comeback continues in Loughborough
  • Mark Cavendish claims fourth stage win at Tour of California
  • Jade Jones admits frustration as winning run ends at World Championships
  • Rio placed booked as England finish fourth at rugby sevens World Series
  • Young team performs well at canoe sprint World Cup
  • Wright takes bronze at Finn sailing Europeans Championships
  • Edward Whitaker top Brit at Royal Windsor Horse Show


Jessica Ennis-Hill declared herself 'reasonably happy' as she continued her comeback with two solid performances at the Loughborough International Athletics meeting.

The Olympic heptathlon champion took third place in the long jump with a best leap of 6.16m and threw 43.88m to finish sixth in the javelin.

Ennis-Hill is yet to make a decision on whether she will take on her first heptathlon since London 2012 at the Hypo-Meeting in Gotzis.

The event was billed as a head-to-head between the former world champion and new British star Katarina Johnson-Thompson - but she won't be competing after picking up a knee injury..

Elsewhere, Chijindu Ujah ran a wind-assisted 10.04 seconds to dominate the 100m and ran a 20.50 personal best in the 200m.

“I feel as though I am in better shape than 20.50 but I think I’m probably tired from the 100m," he said. "I feel as though I am much more consistent this year, 100%."
