Tokyo 2020: Team GB cyclists Matt Walls and Ethan Hayter win silver in men's Madison

Cyclists Matt Walls and Ethan Hayter have won the silver medal for Team GB in the men's Madison at the Tokyo Olympics.

The pair finished behind world champions Lasse Norman Hansen and Michael Morkov, who claimed gold for Denmark.

Britain and France - represented by Benjamin Thomas and Donavan Grondin - finished tied on 40 points, three behind Denmark, but silver went to Walls and Hayter by virtue of winning the final sprint at the end of the 200 lap race.

It looked as though they were heading for bronze with 30 laps to go, trailing the French by nine points, but things changed as the Belgian pair of Kenny de Ketele and Robbe Ghys went on the attack.

That brought them right into the picture for bronze, but Britain responded and by catching their attack they moved into position to win the final sprint and with it nick silver.

It gives Walls his second medal of the Tokyo Games after his omnium gold, and a first medal for his Manchester housemate Hayter, part of the team pursuit squad who finished seventh earlier in the week.

It's a second medal for Team GB in the Madison cycling race after Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald claimed gold on Friday.
