Jason Kenny secures Britain's sixth track cycling gold in Rio

Britain ends the Rio track cycling events with six gold medals as Jason Kenny rides to victory in an exhausting Keirin event that was drawn out by two false starts.

Kenny attacked and took the lead on the final metres of his winning race that came just minutes after his fiancee Laura Trott earned gold in the omnium event.

Dutch rider Matthijs Buchli took silver, while Malaysia's Azizulhasni Awang won bronze.

Britain have now won six out of the 10 track events in Rio de Janeiro, just one gold shy of the seven wins in each of the two previous Games.
