Britain may already have found its Winter Olympian of the future if these heart-warming videos show as the tots get inspired by the coverage of the Games currently being held in South Korea and want to join in – of sorts.

Inspired by the luge event was Aria, a lively three-year-old from Edinburgh, who took her mum Julie’s washing basket, climbed in and set off for sporting glory to the finishing line of the TV set.

And it was safety first all the way with our future sporting hero, putting on a safety helmet just in case of any high-speed accidents.
