The National Lottery is gambling on its biggest ever brand campaign to show that even if you fail to hit the jackpot, it is Team GB and ParalympicsGB who are the real winners.

Featuring a bonanza of Team GB and ParalympicsGB personalities, The National Lottery has showcased its summer-long Olympics campaign, which reminds the UK how it can support athletes at the games in Tokyo this summer.

A succession of top athletes including discus thrower Dan Greave, wheelchair tennis player Jordanne Whiley MBE and taekwondo star Lutalo Muhammad are shown receiving a helping hand from the great British public, who attempt to motivate and support their idols.
