Cycling legend Tommy Godwin dies

Double Olympic cycling medallist Tommy Godwin dies aged 91.

Cycling legend Tommy Godwin has died aged 91, it has been announced.

Godwin won two bronze medals at the 1948 Olympic Games in London, succeeding in the team pursuit and kilometre time trial.

After his competitive career was over, Godwin took up several roles with British Cycling, such as coaching future generations of cycling including Mick Bennett, another Olympic medallist.

He was also the president of the British Cycling Federation and, in 1964, became Britain's first paid national coach.

Sir Chris Hoy said on his Twitter account: "So sad to hear cycling legend and Olympic medallist from 1948, the great Tommy Godwin, has passed away."

Godwin carried this summer's Olympic torch through Solihull and was a regular spectator at the velodrome through the Games.
