Jessica Ennis-Hill: I'm on course for indoor season return


Jessica Ennis-Hill has targeted the indoor season early next year for her competitive return from the Achilles problem that forced her to miss last month's World Championships in Moscow.

The Olympic heptathlon champion is undergoing rehabilitation and hopes to be back in action by February. "The rehab's going well and I'm just building back into training. I think I'm on course, it's just taking a little bit of time," she said. "I'm having to take it as it comes, but my plan is to come back for the indoor season next year."
