    British Cycling said Archibald had initially been deemed fit to continue after falling heavily in Friday's omnium event.

    But overnight she "developed signs of concussion". Elinor Barker will now partner Neah Evans.

    Barker won gold in the 10km scratch race on the opening day.

    Elsewhere Ethan Hayter is expected to represent Great Britain in the men’s omnium having ridden magnificently to win gold at the European Championships in Glasgow back in August.

  3. What are the Track Cycling World Championships?

    The Track Cycling World Championships have been held every year since 1893 and see the best indoor cyclists from across the globe come together to compete in ten disciplines over five days.

    Events range from the gruelling omnium, which sees competitors involved in four different races in a single day, to the lightning-fast time trials.

    The winners of each event are crowned world champions and awarded the iconic rainbow jersey, which they can wear during races for the next year to mark their achievement.

    The event is being held for the second time in Pruzskow, near the Polish capital of Warsaw, and Great Britain’s 21-strong team will be hoping to improve upon their two gold medals won in the 2018 edition in the Netherlands.

    Britons competing this year include former champions Laura and Jason Kenny, reigning madison champions Katie Archibald and Emily Nelson, and Vicky Williamson, returning to the velodrome nearly three years after sustaining serious injuries in a horrific crash.
