An Olympic gymnast inspired dozens of children during a visit to their school.

Louis Smith spent two hours with pupils at Baston Primary School on Tuesday to share his passion for sport.

He showed off his back-flipping skills and answered questions from the children who were all keen to learn how he got his muscles and what he eats for breakfast.

PTA chairman Lisa Squires, was delighted to welcome Louis to the school.

She said: “After the Olympics we asked if Louis could visit the school so we were really pleased to be included on his tour of local schools this week.

“He was fantastic with the children and they have all been playing ‘how to be Louis Smith’ in the playground since his visit so he must have made an impression.”
