Cornwall's Olympic and Paralympic heroes say - bring on Rio.

They have been celebrating the end of the games in London with a big parade, watched by up to a million spectators.

But Penzance's Helen Glover and Jonathan Fox have told Pirate FM they will go for gold again in four years time.

The St Stephen's swimmer said: "Yeah, yeah, I am. Another four years seems a very long way away. We've the World [Championships] and the Europeans next year so, bring on Rio."

It means the Duchy's elite athletes will be back in training after taking well deserved breaks.

Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie has also hinted he could go for a fifth gold medal in Rio, but in a different sailing class.
