Cycling: Kenny wins keirin, girlfriend in Twitter frenzy

Britain's Olympic sprint champion Jason Kenny won the keirin gold medal at the world track cycling championships on Friday, a victory which sent girlfriend Laura Trott, also a title winner, into a Twitter frenzy.

Kenny beat German favourite Maximilian Levy, who had lost out to another British rider, Chris Hoy, last year. Dutch rider Matthijs Buchli claimed bronze.

Trott, Kenny's girlfriend and a gold medallist in the women's team pursuit on Thursday, praised her man on Twitter.

"Arghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! Happiest girlfriend in the world!!!! @JasonKenny107 #lovehim x," she tweeted.
