Six-time Olympic gold medallist Sir Chris Hoy swapped his bike for a Royal Air Force Typhoon as he took to the skies above Scotland.
The cyclist boarded the aircraft - which can fly at twice the speed of sound - during a visit to RAF Leuchars in Fife.
Sir Chris joined 6 Squadron for the 60-minute flight during a routine training exercise which saw him fly at around 30,000ft.
Sir Chris said:
The Typhoon is the RAF's multi-role combat aircraft and several jets were based at RAF Northolt in west London to provide air security throughout the Olympic Games.
Wing Commander Roddy Dennis flew the aircraft with Sir Chris as a passenger up to Orkney and then back over the Highlands. The Olympian then took over the controls as the Typhoon travelled just off the coast of St Andrews.
