The Hertfordshire-born cyclist has taken her all-time tally of gold medals to four, making her Britain’s most successful ever female Olympian.
Our Tweet on Tuesday night to celebrate Laura’s success was greeted with a fantastic response from fans, including Mark Higgins who wrote: “I'm even more impressed now I've found out you're a @SpursOfficial fan!! Congrats on your 4th gold medal.”
Another gold medallist, rower Matt Gotrel, meanwhile, posted a picture of himself with two fellow Spurs supporters, DJs Andy Purnell and Nihal Arthanayake, saying: “The @SpursOfficial supporters club out here in #Rio2016- thanks for the love lads! #COYS”
