She's just 23, has already won TWO gold medals in the London and Rio Olympics - and now here's double Olympic champion Jade Jones as you've never seen her before...

Jade, from Flint in North Wales, proudly posed with her medals during a fashion shoot at Reveal HQ and gave us an insight into the discipline and dedication that is needed to attain Olympic gold.

The Taekwondo ace, who is nicknamed 'The Headhunter' for her lethal right foot, is usually seen on TV in a full martial arts kit, but couldn't resist stepping into something a little more fashion forward and figure hugging when we caught up with her.

Doesn't she look in-credible?!

Despite being able to totally pull off a mini dress and sequins, Jade admits to us that she is "always comfiest in my trackies."

She adds: "Deep down I'll be a tomboy forever... That's why I've got that fight and aggression in me."

Although, achieving Olympic gold is not just a question of aggression.

Jade tells us that she is extremely disciplined and focused too: "All I do is train, eat and sleep. When I'm not training, I'm tired and chill out."

"I start training at 7am for two and a half hours, then have some food and train again," she explains. "Sometimes I might practice three times a day."

At 5ft 6in and a size 8, Jade looks oh-so-fab in our pictures, but she claims that she isn't fighting fit at the moment.

Why's that? Well, after training intensively for the Olympics, she's allowed herself some (well deserved may we add) time off.

"My fit weight is 57kg (8st 9lb), but I'm currently taking a break from training so I'm 61kg now," she reveals, before joking: "And I can feel the weight going on!"

"I craved home cooked meals, like Sunday roasts when I was away and I do have a sweet tooth."

You and us both Jade, but you still look pretty amazing to us - and just look at that high kick. SO impressive!
