Teddy Maltby is barely a day old but his family are already earmarking him for Olympic glory.

Although it is early days, he looks like a champion, having tipped the scales at 9lb 4oz when he was born.
But his Olympic aspirations are more to do with the day on which he was born rather than an ultra-competitive family pushing him into sport.
Teddy was born three days early, on Monday, which was dubbed "2012 day" by organisers of London's 2012 Olympic bid.
Every child who arrived into the world in the UK on 20 December this year is being offered the chance to take part in the games if the capital's bid to host them is successful.
Along with their families, they will be offered a role in the opening/closing ceremonies, or other promotional events.
Teddy's proud dad Lee (25) must now register his child's birth as well as put the baby's name down for the Olympics.
He said: "My partner Julie keeps saying that Teddy is barely a day old yet and people are already talking about him going to the Olympics."

Teddy, who is Julie's third child and Lee's first, will live with his parents and step-brothers in Canning Town, London.
He was born on 10.37am at Newham General Hospital, London.
Tottenham fan Lee said: "I love sports - especially football - and I think hosting the Olympics would be fantastic for this country.
"Everyone is always saying London is bad, because of crime and things, so it would be fantastic to see us do well.
"It would be a great thing for Teddy and the family to have some part in the games as it's a real once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
"The hospital told us about 2012 day after the birth and I've still got to register him, but I'll have to wait as we're a bit busy at the moment.
"We're just looking forward to spending Christmas together now."
A final decision on who will host the games will be made on 6 July.
