A café owned by double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes has opened its doors to customers for the last time this morning.
Dame Kelly announced last month that Café 1809 in Hildenborough, near Tonbridge, will serve its final cup of coffee today.
The retired middle distance runner won two gold medals in Athens in 2004 and opened the café in 2014.
However, she revealed on Twitter on October 31 she wanted to pursue other ambitions and "bring a new energy into my life and the village".
Dame Kelly added: “We will be opening again but as a different venture, providing space and a place for events, pop ups, community gatherings and more."
Customers have taken to social media this weekend to document their final visit to the store and wish the Olympic champion well for the future.
A sister branch of the café in Gravesend was opened in June 2017 but was shut just three months later.
