Laura Trott says she can't believe she won another gold at London 2012:

"I came into today not feeling as good as yesterday, and I was losing my head a bit between events because they weren't going the way I wanted them to.

"To finish off with that 500m, I can't believe it. I'm really happy.

"It's all thanks to the coaches really, and my family and friends are here too, and the support of the crowd."

Great Britain's Laura Trott has won her second gold of the London 2012 Olympic Games with victory in the women's omnium.

The Hertfordshire cyclist won team pursuit gold on Saturday but has now won an individual title to add to her Olympic success.

She joins an elite club of British females to have won double gold at a single Games, including Dame Kelly Holmes and swimmer Rebecca Adlington.

Sarah Hammer of the United States won silver in the omnium, and Australia’s Annette Edmondson won bronze.

Olympic gold medal-winning track cyclist Laura Trott is to get two golden post boxes after a mix-up over where she grew up.

Royal Mail's pledged to paint a red post box gold in the home town of every British champion, so Trott was looking forward to a box in Cheshunt getting the special makeover.

But the company chose Harlow in Essex, to receive a golden box instead, because the town is listed as her place of birth on the Team GB website.

Trott, who won the final of the women's team pursuit yesterday alongside Dani King and Joanna Rowsell, posted this message to her Twitter followers:

"So people i need you to tweet @PostOffice for me.. my postbox is going in harlow which isnt in my hometown Cheshunt is where it should be!!"

Tim Cowen of Royal Mail said: "We tweeted her straight back to say we'll be delighted to do one in Cheshunt as well."

19 year-old cyclist Laura Trott from Harlow has been included in the British team for the Olympics. She has been included in the track team alongside Joanna Rowsell from Carshalton.

However, Bradley Wiggins and Emma Pooley are yet to find out if they will be in the road cycling teams - they are both on the shortlist but the final line-up is yet to be decided.
