Kye White was happy to claim third place at the BMX Racing World Cup event in Glasgow.

The Olympic silver medallist took a break from training after Tokyo and competed in ITV show Dancing on Ice earlier this year.

White said of the result: “I’m happy with it.

“I’ve had a long rest after the Olympics, probably about two months of training and we’re into this race so the podium is good.

“I did want to win in front of a home crowd but we’ve still got tomorrow.”

Olympic champion Bethany Shriever was in strong form through the rounds but was unable to make up for a poor start in the final and finished eighth.
