Jody Cundy models Stella McCartney’s Great Britain designs at London 2012 kit launch

PARALYMPIC hero Jody Cundy has hailed the Stella-McCartney-designed London 2012 outfit as the “nicest kit he has ever pulled on”.

The fashion designer’s Great Britain kit was criticised by some athletes after it was unveiled yesterday - with some complaining about a “lack of red”.

But Walpole St Andrew star Cundy, who gave feedback on the initial designs last year, was thrilled to get his hands on the Adidas-sponsored gear.

He said: “It was a pleasure to be a part of the kit launch and an honour to be one of the first to wear it.

“It is the nicest kit I’ve ever pulled on and I can’t wait to wear it proudly this summer. I think it looks awesome.

Cundy, who travels to a training camp in Majorca today, added: “It really makes you feel part of the team and I can’t wait to hopefully pull on the same kit later this year.”
