Jonas, a Team GB Olympics pioneer, became a world champion at the third time of asking last month by capturing the WBO super-welterweight title.

Jonas said about balancing motherhood with professional sport: "It can be tough. It is the expectation that you put on yourself.

"It is what society says that being a mother should entail".

"Sometimes you feel like you are not doing what you should do".

"But when I speak to other working mums, they suffer the same struggles. They don't feel like they have enough time. They don't feel like they are doing everything right".

"Now I feel at ease that it will never be perfect.

"I am in the same boat as most working mums."

She revealed her daughter's role in a previous fight: "In the Harper camp we had gone into a lockdown so she came with me into the gym.

"She had never been involved so heavily as she was during that camp.
