New record haul for golden boy Hoy
Great Britain's Sir Chris Hoy celebrates winning gold in the men's keirin with omnium gold medallist Laura Trott
Sir Chris Hoy has made Olympic history by winning his sixth Olympic title on a day when Britain claimed its best gold medal haul for more than a century.
Sir Chris's triumph in the frenzied atmosphere of the velodrome means he now has more golds than any other British Olympian - Sir Steve Redgrave has five.
His victory brought Team GB's tally to 22 gold, 13 silver and 12 bronze - making it the most successful Games in terms of gold medals since the London Olympics of 1908 and equalling the total number of medals won in Beijing.
After winning the keirin title Sir Chris, 36, rolled around the velodrome draped in the Union flag as the audience, which included Prince Harry, raised the roof. He told the BBC: "It's just unbelievable; it's the most amazing feeling. This is the perfect end to my Olympic career."
Before Sir Chris's record-breaking victory the new star of British women's cycling Laura Trott, 20, won her second gold of the Games.
An ecstatic Trott now joins an elite club of British women to have won double gold at a single Games, including Dame Kelly Holmes and Rebecca Adlington.
Earlier the Team GB gold rush continued as the dressage team trotted to a historic victory over Germany.
Team dressage has been dominated by Germany in every Games since 1984 - but the magic of London 2012 meant that this was yet another bastion to fall to an apparently unstoppable Team GB. The team of Carl Hester, Laura Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin put in an exquisite performance in this most rarefied of equine sports.
The Brownlee brothers raced to Olympic glory in one of the most dramatic races yet at London 2012. Alistair Brownlee took gold and his brother Jonny won bronze despite being given a 15-second penalty. As he closed in on victory Alistair grabbed a Union flag from the crowd, wrapped it around his shoulders and walked triumphantly across the finish line in Hyde Park. He waited to embrace his brother who had to fight incredibly hard to overcome the penalty given for mounting his bike too quickly after swimming the Serpentine.
And there was further success in Weymouth as Nick Dempsey took silver in the men's windsurfing.
