Katarina JOHNSON-THOMPSON - silver

On how she rates her performance:

"It's the European Championships, against the very best, one of the all-time greats (gold medallist Nafissatou THIAM, BEL), so I'm glad I was able to hold my own.

"I was the most calm I've ever been going into that. I was just concentrating on me and I'm proud of myself.

"I've had a difficult three years and I definitely feel it's a turning point, even since the Commonwealth Games. It's taken a lot of hard work and a lot of people to get me to where I am and I have too many people to thank."
