I don't know what Gab has told you but whatever it is, it's not true. He has a gambling addiction and has thrown your money away.

I guess part of it was that I had known Gab since 2009, when I was still largely unknown. So while I knew there might be hangers-on after I won long jump gold at London 2012, I believed I could trust him. Funnily enough, when I joined him one of the things he said to me was: 'I won't lie to you. I may not be able to make you that much money but I will try very hard. Actually that was one of the attractions. I thought 'this guy is being honest.

I was in such a panic I called WeBuyAnyCar.com. For months and months I had a horrible feeling that the case would never be resolved and I would have to move on. I was really worried about there being no justice for something that was a crime.

I am really sorry, the accountants have messed it up – they have sent the money to wrong accounts. I had a really bad investment go wrong, I was trying to improve the business and I lost all the money. I have now been borrowing money off of loan sharks and they're now after me.

It was a horrible time. We were coming into a world championship year, but behind closed doors my stress levels were through the roof. My money had completely and utterly disappeared and I was trying to focus on looking after my family while trying to win a world title.
