Belgian Paralympian Marieke Vervoort has ended her own life through euthanasia at the age of 40.

Vervoort, who won gold and silver at the London 2012 Paralympics, and two further medals at Rio 2016, had an incurable degenerative muscle disease.

Euthanasia is legal in Belgium and in 2008 Vervoort signed papers which would one day allow a doctor to end her life.

A statement from her home city of Diest said Vervoort "responded to her choice on Tuesday evening".

I Call True: A hugely brave and proud individual who competed at the highest level and decided to leave on her terms rather than suffer.

If it is consented and controlled then what is the harm in this?
