Tokyo Olympics: Tom Pidcock wins Olympic gold medal in men’s mountain bike cross country

Tom Pidcock took Great Britain’s Olympic gold medal tally to three on Day Three of the Tokyo Games, winning the men’s mountain bike cross country.

The 21-year-old crossed the finish line at the Izu Mountain Bike Course draped in a Union flag after a brilliant ride on his Olympic debut and just half an hour after Tom Daley and Matty Lee added a second gold of the day.

Britain’s first two days had yielded one silver and one bronze, but Monday started an astonishing run.

Adam Peaty won Britain’s first gold of the delayed Tokyo Game with a dominant swim to defend his 100m breaststroke title, while Daley and Lee teamed up to win the men’s 10m synchronised platform diving gold.

Alex Yee had also added a silver medal in the men’s triathlon on Monday on his Games debut.
