Greg Rutherford hopes to be back in competition soon after taking his first jump in six months today (Tuesday).

The 2012 Olympic long jump champion missed much of 2017 through injury, but began preparations for the new season with his first jump since June 2017.

He tweeted: “I couldn’t be happier to be back in the sand.”
