The Podleś quantum sphere S q 2 admits a natural commutative C -subalgebra I q with spectrum {0}∪{q 2k:k∈N 0}, which may therefore be considered as a quantised version of a classical interval. We study here the compact quantum metric space structure on I q inherited from the corresponding structure on S q 2, and provide an explicit formula for the metric induced on the spectrum. Moreover, we show that the resulting metric spaces vary continuously in the deformation parameter q with respect to the Gromov-Hausdorff distance, and that they converge to a classical interval of length π as q tends to 1.
