Britain's Becky James wins her second gold and fourth medal at the 2013 UCI track world championships with a win in the women's keirin.

Becky James has taken her second gold at the UCI track world championships in Minsk after winning the women's keirin event.

The British cyclist had faced competition from Kristina Vogel, but the German crashed on the final lap, allowing the 21-year-old to take her second win and fourth medal at the event.

James told BBC Sport: "It's going to take a while to sink in. It feels like a complete dream.

"I want to thank everyone for helping me. It's been tough but we finally made it. Can't believe I've got two golds, two rainbow jerseys."

The Welsh cyclist also won gold in the women's sprint event yesterday, having picked up bronzes in the 500m time trial and team sprint earlier in the championships.

The win is Britain's fifth of the championships.
