Great Britain's cyclists have won the men's team pursuit gold - giving Sir Bradley Wiggins a fifth Olympic gold and a British record eighth medal in all.
Can you give a person two knighthoods? Arise sir sir Bradley Wiggins.

Britain's Ed Clancy, Steven Burke, Owain Doull and Wiggins clocked a world record of three minutes 50.570 seconds in the first round of the four-man, four-kilometres event.
Australia advanced to the final while keeping Jack Bobridge in reserve, having so far not shown their full hand. And the perennial rivals - Australia won March's world title ahead of Britain - slugged it out for gold.
Britain were trailing until 500m to go, when a huge roar erupted from the numerous Britons in the crowd.

And Britain surged on to win gold in a world record of 3mins 50.265secs.
How are you meant to go to bed after that? Wonderful stuff from the team pursuit boys. 8 Olympic medals for #Wiggo.

While everyone's obviously happy for the whole team, people are beyond excited for Wiggins and his record number of medals.
I didn't think I could love Sir Bradley Wiggins more until tonight. #Haveyouseenmymedal

And there was something very emotional about watching Wiggins and Sir Chris Hoy share a hug. Oh, and Sir Steve Redgrave was there too...
what a priceless moment - Sir Bradley Wiggins, Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Steve Redgrave having a hug at the velodrome - sporting supremacy
