Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams has married a soldier that she met on dating app Tinder 18 months ago.

Williams became engaged to her new beau Craig Ham, after just 12 weeks.

The couple said "I do" in Williams' childhood village at St Nicholas's church in Bathampton, which she had attended since the age of six.

"I was thinking about the awesome days in my life and realised a wedding day tops everything," the former skeleton racer told Hello! magazine.

Williams won gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada, but announced her retirement in 2012, citing injuries as her reason.
