Former Olympic champion Greg Rutherford says Friday’s Great City Games can show the world a united Manchester in the face of Monday’s attack.

The event, which is staged in the city centre, was given the go-ahead by council and police on Tuesday.

“It will be amazing to see people come out and get behind it, not just for the sport but to show they’re not going to let terrorists win,” said Rutherford.
