Sir Chris Hoy claimed a sixth Olympic gold medal to become the most successful British Olympian of all time.

Having won gold on the first night of the track cycling in the men's team sprint, Hoy's triumph in the keirin was the perfect finale for Team GB.

Hoy's six golds take him past rowing great Sir Steve Redgrave's five.

And with a silver from Sydney 2000 as well, he equals Bradley Wiggins's record total of seven medals.
