The first round of the 4x100m relay competition takes place in the Stade de France on August 8, with the final the following night.

For Hunt, who is now based in Italy with her coach Marco Airale, her Olympics selection is the latest milestone on her comeback from illness and serious injury.

Joining her in the relay squad are European 100m champion Dina Asher-Smith, Desiree Henry, Imani-Lara Lansiquot, Daryll Neita and Bianca Williams.

Team Leader Paula Dunn said: “Congratulations to all the athletes and their support networks on their selection for Paris 2024.

“It is a huge moment in their careers, and they have all worked incredibly hard to get into this position. I wish all the selected athletes well in their last few weeks of preparation and we will continue to ensure that they can optimise and maximise all the support required leading into Paris.

“It’s a brilliant mix of athletes who have multiple global medals alongside some amazing young talent that has only just broken through this season.

“We know from this we have a high quality team for Paris who know how to produce their best when it counts and will be challenging for medals and those Olympic final spots. It’s an exciting time for everyone, and we’re incredibly proud of the team named today.”
