London 2012 golden girl Jessica Ennis-Hill dropped into the Game Changers studio to talk about how the Olympics has affected her life.

Ennis-Hill won the heptathlon at her home Games just over a year ago and says that despite more people recognising her in the street, she still does very normal things.

"It was an incredible few months with the Olympics, with the whole build-up, the Games and then the aftermath where I didn't know what was going to happen," she said.

"It's nice that people have followed your achievements and want a picture with you, but I still go to the supermarket, go shopping and do all the things I used to do."

Ennis-Hill, who is recovering from injury and hoping to be back in action in time for the indoor athletics season, also spoke about how excited she was ahead of London 2012.

The 27-year-old's first event was the 100m hurdles but she says she never thought about what would happen if things went wrong in front of her home fans.

"I had done all the training for that one moment so I didn't let myself think about what would happen if I hit a hurdle," added Jess.

"I didn't want to get into that negative space."
