The online retailer was founded in 2015 by Nick Paulson-Ellis, who will stay on as chief executive with support from the High Street giant. 

The terms of the deal were not disclosed but it will eventually see M&S take full ownership of The Sports Edit. 

It is the latest move in the 138-year-old retailer’s Brands at M&S Strategy aimed at boosting online sales. 

The investment furthers M&S’s focus on active and leisurewear. The market boomed through Covid, growing 35 per cent in two years to be worth £900million annually.
