Zharnel HUGHES (GBR) - gold

On winning his second gold of the European championships, having already won the men's 100m:

"I'm so happy. The guys held their composure, they stayed relaxed. The team is strong, we have great depth, so I just trusted the guys to do what they needed to do and I'll just do what I need to do and I'm really grateful that I've come away with a gold medal."

Adam GEMILI (GBR) - gold

On his leg of the race, the third:

"I was just trying to run as hard as I can. Everyone was quite cold because we were in the warm-up area for a long time and it's just such a relief to come away (with gold). (It's) a nice way to end the champs. The relay's always good fun and I'm very fortunate to be part of this team, as always. I'm so happy, so happy."


On anchoring the team:

"It's an amazing feeling. It shows we've got so much strength in depth.

"We practise for situations that anything can go wrong. Everyone's ready to come in. There are so many levels to us. We're a lot of characters, we come together, we're family. 

"To celebrate with these guys is an amazing feeling."
