The 25-year-old admitted: “It’s an honor for me because the Olympics really means a lot to me, and I have amazing memories from my previous two Olympics – in Beijing and London.

“I’m enjoying being a part of the Danish team, and feeling the team spirit that I normally do not experience every day.

“To carry the flag in Rio will be one of the highpoints of my career, and it will be something that I will never forget.”
