Example said meeting Jessica had been his "favourite moment of the Olympics" and that he was thrilled to wear her gold medal.

"I didn't know what to say. I'm usually so confident around women and in your face," he said. "It was the first time in five or six years where I've been really, really shy and didn't know what to do.

"Even when I met her [points at girlfriend] and she's gorgeous, I was like 'yeah how you doing'... I didn't know what to say to Jess, I was like 'so what have you eaten today'?"
