Five years on from the furore over her appearance in Rio, Lizzie Deignan is hoping a more relaxed preparation can lead her to Olympic success.

The 32-year-old found herself at the centre of a storm days before the 2016 road race when Sportsmail revealed she was fighting a doping ban over three whereabouts failures.

Ultimately, one of the strikes she had originally decided not to contest was erased from her record by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which allowed her to compete. Her presence did not go down well among some and her fifth-placed finish, following silver in London, was a disappointment.
