Olympic inspiration comes from the red, white and blue corner!
Team GB's Olympic medal success in the ring has inspired youngsters to try their hand at boxing.
The number of children turning up for beginners' sessions at Thurmaston Amateur Boxing Club has doubled since the end of the Games.
Club chairman Bob Davies said that 20 boys and girls had turned up at the club, off Barkby Thorpe Lane, Thurmaston, on Monday night.
He said "That is twice the number we usually get at the club. In fact, we had some youngsters queuing up outside.

"I have no doubt that the increase in numbers is because of the success of the British boxers in the Olympics.
"The youngsters had seen the Team GB boxers winning gold medals and were inspired to give the sport a go.
"What is great is that we had boys and girls turning up. The success of the British boxer Nicola Adams showed the girls that they can join in, too.
"Boxing is a great sport to get into because it teaches discipline, fitness and respect for your opponent.
"It helps keep youngsters off the street and gives them a focus and a channel for their aggression."
The club runs sessions on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Bob said: "There are sessions to suit everyone. We have just started a women's boxing session on a Thursday night and it is proving very popular."
Anyone who is interested in giving the sport a go can ring the club on 0116 269 4938.
The Leicester Mercury's Olympic Legacy campaign aims to highlight the variety of clubs in the county and to help people inspired by Team GB's success take up a sport.
