Tessa Jowell on Greg Rutherford..

'One day I walked into the flats (in the athletes village) and saw a tall red-headed athlete dressed in team GB kit. I walked up to him and said "you're going to the stadium?" "yes" he replied, "to compete in the long jump." I wished him good luck and squeezed his hands. Two hours later, Greg Rutherford was the Olympic champion.' Tessa Jowell
