Laura Kenny is expecting a second child with husband Jason, she announced in a heartfelt post on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon.

After giving birth to their first child, a son called Albie, in 2017, the five-time Olympic gold medallist revealed in April last year that she suffered a miscarriage at nine weeks in November 2021. Then, in January 2022, she had a fallopian tube removed due to an ectopic pregnancy – when a fertilised egg implants itself outside the womb.
