Jason Kenny, Great Britain's most successful Olympian, has retired from cycling to go into coaching.

Kenny has taken up a new role with British Cycling, bringing to an end his esteemed career as a competitor.

The 33-year-old won seven gold medals and two silvers across four Games, most recently triumphing in the keirin at Tokyo 2020.

But Kenny told the BBC: "A massive part of me would love to continue and try to get to Paris [in 2024] and I'm a little bit sad in a way to not do that.

"The opportunity at British Cycling to be a coach might not be there in three years. I thought I'd take it now."

Laura Kenny, his wife, has collected five golds and a silver since her Olympic bow at London 2012.
