Nicola Adams will carry the flag for Team GB in the opening ceremony of the inaugural European Games in the Olympic Stadium in Baku on Friday night.

Adams is one of three London 2012 gold medallists named in a 160-strong squad, along with taekwondo star Jade Jones and canoeist Ed McKeever.

Adams said: "To be representing Team GB at the first ever European Games is a great honour and being selected as the flagbearer will be a truly unforgettable experience."
