CHILD'S JAMBO JOY.

Eilidh Child proudly wore a Hearts top to her Scotland team meeting on Saturday night - and she made it a dream weekend by winning her hurdles event at the Loughborough International yesterday.

The Olympic hopeful had to miss out on the Cup Final win because of her athletics commitments.

But she made up for it by posting a time of 55.92 - the second fastest 400m run by a British woman this season - to win her race. And the 25-year-old said: "It has been a great weekend as I'm a huge Hearts fan.

"I was so happy with the Cup Final result so to win at Loughborough just added to it."

Meanwhile, heptathlon star Jessica Ennis was robbed of a personal best in the 100m hurdles yesterday when blundering officials at the Powerade Games in Manchester set up nine hurdles instead of the regulation 10.
