Chris Hoy's gold medal is Britain's first at Athens

As the BBC Olympics presenters pointed out at the conclusion of the 4-lap race, Chris Hoy's medal ceremony will see the first outing of the British national anthem - and the first raising of the Union Jack - at the Athens Olympics.

At the Sydney Olympics four years ago, Jason Queally won Britain's first gold, also in the kilo.
