Jody Cundy will return to the Paralympics for a sixth time in September after being confirmed in the British squad for Rio.

The 37-year-old, from Walpole St Andrew, near Wisbech, is part of a 15-strong squad which includes Britain's most decorated female Paralympian, Dame Sarah Storey.

Cundy competed as a swimmer at Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004, winning three gold medals. He has since competed as a cyclist, winning two golds at Beijing 2008 and bronze in the 4km pursuit (C4) at London 2012.

Cundy has also won 12 gold medals at the World Track Cycling Championships.
