Cav achieves long-held ambition

Manxman Mark Cavendish has achieved his ambition of winning an Olympic medal.

He claimed silver in the men’s omnium in Rio last night (Monday), finishing two points clear of defending champion Lasse Hansen of Denmark who took the bronze.

The event was won by Italy's Elia Viviani.

Cavendish, representing Great Britain, had won four world titles on the road and track but missed out on a medal in his previous two Olympics.
