Sir Chris Hoy's mum almost couldn't watch her son compete in the men's keirin at the London Velodrome.

He went on to win, claiming a sixth Olympic gold medal to become the most successful British Olympian of all time.

Carol Hoy then helped proud dad David unfurl a homemade banner in honour of their son's historic win.
