Team GB Olympic athletes tell us what love means to them

What does love mean to you?

Love is universal. We have all felt it at one time or another, but that doesn’t mean that it means the same for each of us. Love can vary in infinite ways from person to person, and from relationship to relationship.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, six Team GB Olympic athletes sat down to reveal what love truly means to them. From brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, married couple Helen and Kate Richardson-Walsh, and divers Jack Laugher and Lois Toulson, who have been in a relationship for three years.

To each pair, love means something a little different, but each is as worthwhile and meaningful as the other.

These are their stories of love. Told by them.
