The Manchester-based couple went public about their relationship during the London 2012 games, where they won two gold medals apiece.

Essex-born Trott, 22, excitedly tweeted this morning: "Merry Christmas everyone. I've had the most amazing couple of days thanks to Jason Kenny and the whole family."
