GB's Kenny wins fifth Olympic gold

Great Britain's Jason Kenny won his fifth Olympic gold medal by beating compatriot Callum Skinner in the men's sprint final at Rio 2016, reports the BBC.
 
Kenny, champion at London 2012, came out on top in the first two races to win the best-of-three final.
 
Russian Denis Dmitriev beat Australia's Matthew Glaetzer to take bronze.
 
"It is special, really special," said Kenny, who has now won as many Olympic golds as rower Sir Steve Redgrave and fellow cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins.
 
Only Sir Chris Hoy, also a cyclist, has won more but Kenny, 28, can equal his mark when he races in the keirin on Tuesday.
 
"I'm really grateful," he told BBC Sport. "When we win, it feels like the team is winning and we have everyone behind us, pushing us."
