Jon Dibben won Great Britain’s second gold medal of the Track World Championships in London in the points race. The 22-year-old showed an incredible turn of speed at the end of the notoriously grueling race to ride away with two-laps remaining to secure maximum points on the line, and with them the gold medal.

It capped off an impressive day for team GB who, rocked by poor performances on day one, added another two bronze medals to their tally.
