Dame Kelly Holmes has called for Dwain Chambers to be restored to Great Britain's squad for the European Cup.

Chambers marked his return from a two-year drugs ban by clocking 10.07 seconds over 100 metres in Gateshead a week ago, sending him to the top of the British rankings. The GB squad for the European Cup will be named and double Olympic gold medallist Holmes believes Chambers must be included.


"When it comes to 100m men, they need to step up to the plate and Dwain's doing that now," she told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme. "It was right he was out of the sport for the time he was, but he's come back. He's a great athlete, and we probably need him back in the sport."
