Clay, who won silver at the 2004 Olympics in Athens before taking gold at the 2008 games in Beijing, revealed that the stunt had actually been Ellie's idea. 

When asked on Twitter, whether the pair had denied the tooth fairy a night's work, the 35-year-old was quick to offer reassurance, 'Oh no, don't worry, the tooth is safely under her pillow!'

An Olympic javelin weighs around 800g and can reach speeds approaching 70mph on release.
