Scots hurdler Eilidh Doyle has announced she’s expecting her first child.
The 32-year-old posted on Instagram: “Hanging up my competitive spikes for this season to make way for the pitter patter of tiny feet. Baby Doyle due January 2020.”
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was among those to congratulate the Olympic bronze medallist on the news.
Doyle, who has been married to husband Brian since 2015, is one of Scotland’s most decorated track and field athletes.
She’s due to give birth just six months prior to the Olympics in Tokyo.
