AN OLYMPIAN turned ballroom dancing champion was the star attraction at a Purley school on Tuesday.

Pupils at Riddlesdown Collegiate were treated to a visit by silver medallist Louis Smith.

The gymnast, who competed at London 2012, is currently on a tour of schools around the country, in which he gives a talk to selected aspiring gymnasts and footballers.

Helen Lye, the school's head of marketing, said: "He was an excellent speaker and advised students how to juggle their sport with school subjects.

"The students asked him a lot of questions about training and diets and they found him very helpful.

"We have many pupils who are serious about their football and a group of girl gymnasts too."

Since winning Olympic silver on the pommel horse last summer, Smith, 24, has proved to be a hit on our TV screens by winning the latest series of BBC show Strictly Come Dancing.
