The British quartet of Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Steven Burke and Peter Kennaugh finished in three minutes, 51.659 seconds, almost three seconds clear of the silver medallists.

David Bowie's "Heroes" blasted out over the tannoy as the home fans clapped the gold medallists on a lap of honour after they shaved almost a second of the previous record set on Thursday.

New Zealand beat Russia to the bronze medal in a time of 3:55.952.
