Designed by adidas creative director Stella McCartney; the Team GB and ParalympicsGB kit is said to be a ground-breaking range of performance wear, combining the latest in technical innovation with her signature modern design aesthetic.

The design features a British Coat of Arms that has been specially created to act as a unifying symbol across the two teams and multiple sports.

The new kit was created with consultation with athletes including 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medallists Trott, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Tom Daley.

Trott and Williams were joined by the likes of Ennis-Hill, Daley, Max Whitlock and Olivia Breen at the reveal of the adidas Team GB and ParalympicsGB kit at the Seymour Leisure Centre in Marylebone, London earlier today (Wednesday).
