Team Sky have officially confirmed the signing of Olympic gold medallist Owain Doull for the remainder of the 2016 season as a stagiaire and as a full-time professional from 2017.

The Welshman joins up with the team after taking gold in the team pursuit at the Olympic Games in Rio, but the announcement of his signing to the British squad was let slip in May after Bradley Wiggins revealed where Doull was heading at the Tour of California.
