Jason Kenny claimed his fifth Olympic gold medal as he beat his team-mate Callum Skinner in the men's sprint.

It means Kenny's medal tally now equals Sir Bradley Wiggins and Sir Steve Redgrave.

So... Sir Jason Kenny next?

Kenny and Skinner are room-mates in the athletes' village and train together every day. The pair successfully negotiated the rounds to set up the second all-British final in eight years.

He may be a super human athlete but Kenny was all of us when he admitted he was "dying on his arse" after the race.
