Great Britain's Sir Chris Hoy survived a fright before claiming a fifth Olympic gold on at the London 2012 Velodrome

Hoy, Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny won the three-man, three-lap team sprint in a world record of 42.600 seconds, beating France in a repeat of the final four years ago in Beijing.

Hindes picked himself up off the track after a poor start in qualifying to help propel Team Great Britain to two world records and Olympic gold.
