The Welsh Olympic sprinter posted the sweetest photo of his son to mark the wonderful occasion.

At the time of Teddy’s birth, Iwan admitted he was extremely overwhelmed by the entire situation as any parent would be.

"Yesterday was the worst day of my life looking at my everything with tubes everywhere in an incubator," he added.

"He is now beginning to breathe better for himself without full aid of machines, I now know what true unconditional love is."
