Faint-hearted (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

timid

'faint-hearted' is the definition.
(I know that faint-hearted can be written as timid)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for timid that I've seen before include "Mouse" , "Gutless" , "afraid to speak out?" , "Not brave" , "Not assertive, retiring" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent, The Mirror, The Times, the Penny Press and The Sun.
