Paralympic great Bethany Firth has revealed how mum Lindsey's brave battle against cancer has been an inspiration ahead of next year's Games in Tokyo.

Speaking in her role as ambassador for Lidl's Sport For Good initiative, the swimming sensation talked about the challenge of the Paralympics being delayed until 2021 due to Covid, a novel way of training at the start of lockdown and her hunger to shine in Japan having visited the Far East in January.

The world champion and multi-Paralympic gold medallist also opened up about her admiration for "wonderful mum" Lindsey, who a year ago was given the all clear after coming through treatment for thyroid cancer.
