Kelly told the Sunday Mirror: "I needed to do this now, for me. It was my decision. I’m nervous about saying it.

"I feel like I’m going to explode with excitement. Sometimes I cry with relief."

She bravely chose to break her silence during Pride month after "dark times" when she considered taking her own life.

Dame Kelly, who served in the Army, told the Sunday Mirror she first realised she was gay when she kissed another female soldier at the age of just 17.

But she bottled up her true feelings for years – and suffered episodes of self-harm.

Even her celebrations after she won gold in the 800 and 1,500 metres at Athens were spoiled as she feared being outed.
