Kadeena Cox (centre) beat Canada’s Kate O’Brien and New Zealander Anna Grace Taylor to gold Great Britain won three gold medals on the opening day of the Para-cycling Track World Championships in France.

Britain then landed mixed tandem team sprint gold – with Libby Clegg piloted by Georgia Holt and James Ball piloted by Steffan Lloyd.

These are the first worlds since the Covid-19 pandemic and are taking place in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.

Paralympic gold medallist Cox said: "It’s been three and a half years since I was last world champion. I’ve been injured. I’ve missed a lot of training. To come out and take the win was quite nice.

"I surprised myself today. I always turn up on race day but I didn’t expect to go so quickly. Actually a little bit of training and I might be in world record shape soon which is scary."
