Jason’s wife, Laura Kenny, carried the Union flag at the Tokyo 2020 closing ceremony.
Minutes before his win, though, Laura was caught in a heavy crash, ending her hopes of a sixth gold medal in the women’s omnium.
Jason explained that Laura looked angry after the incident but was unsurprisingly full of praise for his partner.
He added: “She walked back past us – at least she didn’t come past on a stretcher. She looked a bit angry. She is a very inspiring character and she is lovely obviously – that’s why I married her.”
