When British sprinter Anyika Onuora took some time off to visit family in Nigeria in October 2015, she expected it to be like every other holiday.

But the 32-year-old contracted malaria and unable to walk, her Rio Olympic dream was left hanging in the balance.

Just 10 months later the Liverpudlian stood on the Olympic podium, with a bronze medal in the 4x400m relay hanging round her neck.
