The 38-year-old is Britain's most decorated Olympian with six gold medals, including two at London 2012, and has won 11 world titles.

He announced his retirement in April 2013, but his passion for motor racing and competition will be fulfilled after agreeing a deal with Nissan, which will see him compete in the 2014 British GT Championship.

He said: "It's the start of a new journey for me.

"It might sound ridiculous right now, but my ambition in motor sport is to compete at Le Mans in the 24-hour race."
