Olympic boxer Adams tops Pink List

London 2012 gold medal-winning boxer Nicola Adams has topped a list of the 101 most influential lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender figures in the UK.

Television presenter Clare Balding was second in the Independent on Sunday's Pink List, while human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell was third.

Adams, 30, from Leeds, said: "It's amazing to be on the list of such inspiring and influential people. 2012 continues to be a great year for me so thanks to everyone for their continued support."

The Pink List was nominated by the newspaper's readers before being finalised by a panel of judges.
