A source told The Sun: ‘Ronnie couldn’t be more proud of Leo. The whole family is behind him and can’t wait to see how far he will go.

‘As far as they’re concerned the sky’s the limit as Leo has so much potential.  

‘Getting a spot in Team GB is an amazing opportunity. Hopefully he’ll hit the big time and become a worldwide star like Ronnie.’

It comes after Leo’s grandmother Jo suffered a broken ankle after falling down a staircase at her ex-husband Ronnie’s home in Ireland.  

The 67-year-old, who was married to the guitarist for 24 years and shares two children with the musician, is now in a race against time to be mobile ahead of their gig in Hyde Park this summer.  

She told The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden: ‘I’m in agony! It’s all due to me falling down a stone staircase holding my little nephew and breaking my ankle at Ronnie’s. And, no, I wasn’t drunk!’

She added: ‘I want to get better so I can see the Stones in Hyde Park this summer. I want to say “hello” to Keith and [his wife] Patti — and limping along on one leg in an orthopedic boot is not a rock ‘n’ roll look!’

The model and presenter also took to Instagram with an update for her followers, revealing she had to undergo an operation.

Jo shared a photo of her bandaged foot in its cast in the car on the way home, and wrote alongside: ‘HOME! For 6 weeks…. Thanks again for all of your wonderful messages.’

She eloped to Las Vegas in 1973 with her first husband, clothing entrepreneur Peter Greene. Their eldest son Jamie was born a year later but the marriage ended in 1976. A year later she met Ronnie. 

‘For our first date he took me to a nice pub on Chelsea Embankment and we had tequila sunrises,’ she said.

They wed in 1985 and have two children, Leah and Tyrone. She also became stepmother to Ronnie’s son Jesse, from his first marriage.
