Dancing on Ice judge Robin Cousins has revealed that when he won his Olympic gold Medal he was injured.
Cousins won his medal during the 1980's games, but was left with damaged knees that required eight operations to mend.
He is to perform in the Dancing on Ice special to mark the Olympic games.
Robin told The Sun: "My injuries were kept fairly quiet. I suppose I have always been one of those people who just deals with what's thrown at me. I was in constant pain then and I am now.
"But I never used it as an excuse. I just had to work out how to perform in a different way."
He added: "Every surgery removes something from that list of what you are able to do physically.
"So for years I resisted going back on the ice because I was aware of my limitations. But to do it in this year of the London 2012 Olympics, and to step from behind the desk on to the ice and actually deliver what I've been yelling at all the Dancing On Ice celebrities for the past seven years, was something I wanted to do.
"I was nervous. There was that sick feeling in the back of my throat, that dry mouth, but just to do something that I love again, for only two minutes, was special.
"People were very gracious, and it was emotional."
