Jessica Ennis-Hill annunces retirement

We need no excuse to post pictures of the lovely Jessica Ennis-Hill, who announced her retirement from athletics yesterday. In 2012, as the poster girl of the London Olympics, she was hugely visible in the media yet, despite this enormous weight of expectation, went on to take the gold medal in the heptathlon.

She just missed out in Rio, taking a silver, having taken time out to have a baby but, at the age of thirty, it will be nice for her to stop the punishing training for this multi-event discipline.

Although we enjoy shots of her displaying her iconic abdomen and pert derriere, this shot of her as an Amazonian Britannia is really stunning.

Oti Mabuse for Strictly Come Dancing

Given Agent Triple P has spent five of the past eleven weeks in Africa we have come to appreciate the looks of African ladies.  Featuring in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing is gorgeous South African dancer Oti (Otlile) Mabuse, who does a lot to offset the loss of Ola Jordan and Aliona Vilani from the programme.

It's her second series of Strictly but she didn't last long in last year's show, thanks to her hopeless celebrity partner.  This year her partner looks like one of the best dancers in the competition so we are looking forward to seeing much more of her endless legs and un-dancer-like but very fine bust.

Twenty six year old Oti was born in Pretoria and has a civil engineering degree, appropriately, given her own very fine construction.  Her mother ran a dance school and she started dancing when she was four, turning professional after leaving university.  She appeared in the German version of Strictly before being spotted by the BBC.
