The two year deal is an extension of his current contract that runs out after this summer's Euro 2016 finals in France.

Coleman, who has lead Wales to their first major finals since 1958, says he's 'delighted' to have completed the deal prior to meeting up with his squad for their pre Euro 2016 training camp in Portugal this week.

Wales have just one more game, a friendly against Sweden in Stockholm on the 5th June, before they fly to France ahead of their first game in Pool B against Slovakia in Bordeaux.

The 29-year-old has been an integral member of Team Sky since its creation in 2010 and has played a crucial role in the team's success.

Signing again was an easy decision. Team Sky feels like home. From the other riders to the staff, I love it here.

I’ve only really just started when it comes to trying to win stage races. I’m learning all the time about how to get in the best shape for them and how to lead a team.

Wales' Jazz Carlin has secured silver in the 800m freestyle at the European Championships.

Carlin was defending champion but had to settle for silver in 8:23.52 behind Boglarka Kapas of Hungary, who won in 8:21.40.

I would've loved to have got the gold, but I raced tough. It's about working hard and to race hard. You'll get those close races in Rio."
