It simply couldn’t have been any better. Three gold medals on offer at Manchester tonight, and all three of them head back to the Great Britain team hotel.

The team pursuit squad of Ed Clancy, Paul Manning, Geraint Thomas and Bradley Wiggins broke the world record on their way to a gold medal-winning ride against Denmark.

Rebecca Romero, a world champion in the quadruple sculls at the rowing world championships three years ago, is now a world champion cyclist.

Spurred on by a fanatical home crowd, she converted last year’s silver in Majorca into gold, gaining revenge on the American Sarah Hammer.

Then Shanaze Reade and Victoria Pendleton won the women’s team sprint against an excellent Chinese duo.

In between all that Chris Hoy fought every inch of the way to get into the last four of the sprint, doing all the semi-finallists a favour by knocking out reigning champion Theo Bos.
