Sarah Storey and David Weir won four gold medals in cycling and athletics respectively, while Ellie Simmonds, then 17, took two gold medals in the pool.

Since the Games Storey, Simmonds and Weir have received as much attention as their Olympic counterparts. Among other plaudits, Storey is to have a stretch of road near her Cheshire home named after her. “It’s all been very surreal,” she said.

Simmonds is now back at school in Swansea studying for A-levels having also received an eclectic range of tributes, including an open-top bus tour of her hometown of Walsall and opening a new ride at Centre Parcs. Weir has been largely confined to home having become a father for the third time – Tillia Grace London was born last month.
