Charlie Webster’s last video after gruelling cycle challenge… just 48 hours before being struck down with Malaria

Charlie Webster was overwhelmed in a video as she celebrated her gruelling cycle to Rio just 48 hours before she was struck down by malaria.

The Sky Sports News presenter – who contracted the disease and is fighting for her life in Brazil after being put in an induced coma – can be seen looking overjoyed as she thanks fans for their support after the 3,000 bike ride from London’s Olympic Stadium.

Speaking to 5 live Daily as the emotional star arrived in Rio earlier this month, she said: “I made it, can you believe it? Just feel so overwhelmed and relieved. I’ve just got goosebumps.
