Greg Rutherford: mayor pays tribute after golden triumph

The mayor of Woburn Sands has paid tribute to famous resident Greg Rutherford – the city's Olympic long jump hero.

In a letter written on behalf of everybody in the town, David Hopkins said: "I know from talking with residents and from the very many emails and calls I have received that I am passing on the views of every single Woburn Sands'ite when I say the tension, the excitement, the pride and the exhilaration of your success on Super Saturday gripped us all.

"The town’s message to Greg is simply that we all want to say congratulations, we're very proud of you, you've achieved so much, we recognise that you have worked hard all these years to be the best at what you do and we look forward to welcoming you home very soon.

"Woburn Sands has never been so proud."
