The 23-year-old grew up in Adeyfield, went to Longdean School and trained at Sapphire School of Gymnastics.

Whitlock became a household name at Rio 2016 in August when he won Team GB’s first ever Olympic golds in gymnastics.

He first bagged bronze in the all-around before winning the floor and pommel horse competitions just a couple of hours apart.
