"I just want to relax and chill and enjoy Reggie and I do want to [have another child] in the near future," she tells The Daily Telegraph.

OPINION: 30-year-old South Yorkshire super mum, who has already ruled out future Olympic involvement, may also decide to turn her back on track and field ahead of next year's London World Championships.

"It's hard to say when is the right time, but I would want to retire on a high. I'm in a really happy place and have to decide."

While her toned six pack appeared to return almost as fast as her 800 metres gutsy gun to tape 2min 9.07sec Rio win, Jess confirms return to full fitness after giving birth actually took almost a year.

RIO FLASHBACK:​ clearly missed her beloved family. "Being away from Reggie was one of the hardest things. I just wanted to give him a massive hug. I couldn't wait to get home and show him this medal".

The dedicated and determined athlete's own mum Alison Powell has suggested now may be right time for her daughter to slow down with potentially injurious training.
