Double gold medal winner Trott admits she 'feels like a kid'

Double gold medal winner Laura Trott said today she still feels like "a 10-year-old kid" despite her Olympic success.

The 20-year-old, from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, said taking both the titles was "surreal" and that she had been unsure whether her win at the Track Cycling World Championship in Melbourne earlier this year was just by chance.

She said: "It still feels totally surreal for me, I still can't believe this is happening, I'm just a 10-year-old kid.

"I didn't know whether I just fluked it in Melbourne and whether I could beat them all again. So it's just amazing, especially to do it in front of a home crowd."
