She was also part of the same boat which triumphed at Eton Dorney four years earlier.

“I’ll miss being part of the best rowing team in the world but am excited about life after sport,” she said.

“I have had the pleasure of rowing with some amazing athletes during my rowing career and I feel so proud to have been able to represent my country for the past six years.”

As well as her Paralympic golds, Relph has also won four world titles since she started her international career in 2011.

She now plans to run the London Marathon in April.
