Double Olympic taekwondo champion Jade Jones could be tempted by a big-money move to MMA – mixed martial arts – after the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Jones, 23, defended her Olympic crown at Rio 2016 and is aiming to become the first fighter in history to win three Olympic gold medals in the sport.
She competes in the World Taekwondo Grand Prix finals in Baku on Saturday.
“I’m not going to lie, it’s tempting to think ‘what else is out there’ and in MMA people earn millions,” she said.
“Taekwondo is an Olympic sport so it’s hard to get sponsors and hard to make money, but I just love it.”
The winner of each weight division at this week’s World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Azerbaijan will earn just under £5000.
