Great Britain win team pursuit gold and silver

"We can't help but feel disappointed but hats off to the Americans."

Mar.02 - SportLand: Great Britain's women's team pursuit quartet took silver at the World Track Championships to complete an impressive return to racing for Laura Kenny.

The four-time Olympic gold medallist gave birth to her first child in August and only began training with the team in early January.

Earlier on Thursday, Ed Clancy, Charlie Tanfield, Ethan Hayter and Kian Emadi won gold in the men's team pursuit.

"I'm shattered to be honest, normally I am in bed with the little one at this time but I have loved every minute of being back on the track," Kenny told BBC Sport.

"I never would have expected to be back so soon and I would have loved to come away with a gold medal, but I have really enjoyed being back with the girls.

"We can't help but feel disappointed but hats off to the Americans."

The quartet beat Denmark to secure Britain's first title in Apeldoorn.
