Manx coach Peter Kennaugh Sr thinks Laxey's Mark Cavendish can win Olympic gold after victory in the Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester.

Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins won the men's madison race at the weekend.

Kennaugh said: "He was very tongue in cheek when he said he would win all four [British, European, World and Olympic] titles.

"But he has got the British and World titles and when he goes for the Olympic title I truly believe he can win it."
