Chris Hoy wins gold
Speaking from the Olympic velodrome, Sport Minister Shona Robison said:
"Sir Chris Hoy is now Scotland and Britain’s greatest ever Olympian and an icon to millions across the world. It’s absolutely incredible what he has done here tonight and throughout his career, and everyone back in Scotland is extremely proud of him.
"Scottish athletes have now won seven golds at these Olympics and Sir Chris Hoy’s triumph crowns an extremely long list of titles and world records. The noise in the velodrome was just unbelievable – no one representing Team GB has ever won six golds before, and we have never had a sportsman like him. What a hero and an inspiration."
