Olympic champion Greg Rutherford is celebrating fatherhood today after the birth of his first baby.

The new dad from Woburn Sands tweeted his 153,000 Twitter followers with a picture of his newborn saying it was the “happiest day” of his life.

The British long jump record holder let slip he was expecting a baby boy with his partner Susie earlier this year, but the couple wanted to keep the name a secret.

Last month, Greg was reported to say he hoped his golden streak would continue - and get even better - after the birth of his first child.
