Jarman said: "It is always very challenging, no matter how well you might do.

"In all the competitions you go to, you can be under just as much pressure at a smaller competition than a competition this big.

"I am absolutely honoured to be able to come here and enjoy everything and produce an amazing result.

"I am going to have to find somewhere in my house to store them, maybe a nice glass cabinet if there is space. I am over the moon."

Jarman has shot to attention after his achievements at the Birmingham event but remains focussed on his career.

He added: "I go on social media quite a lot and I have had so many messages from so many people to give their support.

"During the Games, I try and keep my social media interaction to a minimum. I want to be able to focus on the job at hand.

"It is amazing seeing the messages but I don't want it to become a distraction. Otherwise, you can become flustered."
