Great Britain’s Matt Walls has won track cycling gold in the men’s omnium at the Tokyo Olympics.

The 23-year-old led the standings ahead of the Netherlands’ Jan-Willem van Schip and France’s Benjamin Thomas going into the fourth and final race of the event.

Walls, a bronze medallist at the 2020 world championships, won the opener on Thursday and closed down an initial four-man attack which included Denmark’s Niklas Larsen and produced a surging finish to take 40 points in the scratch race.

He gained 36 points from the tempo race to put himself level on points with two other riders at the top of the field on 76 points.

Another strong performance saw him finishing second in the elimination race to move top of the leaderboard ahead of the final points race.
