SHEFFIELD’S Jessica Ennis has withdrawn from this week’s European Indoor Championships in Paris due to an ankle injury, UK Athletics have confirmed.

The tournament was due to be one of her top priorities this year.

But the 25-year-old heptathlete wants to rest a niggling leg injury to ensure she is 100 per cent ready for the world Championships in South Korea, later this year.
