The athlete, who won gold in the London 2012 canoe slalom, celebrated his 38th birthday by opening the Hall Road.

It is the first of two new Aldi stores to open in Norwich this year.

Children from Edith Cavell Academy School's choir treated customers to a sing-along at the store, before receiving shopping bags full of fresh fruit from the supermarket.

The store is 1,254sqm in size and has 574 free car parking spaces.
