Victoria Pendleton won keirin gold and Sir Chris Hoy sprint silver on the final day of the Track Cycling World Cup in Cali, Colombia.

Pendleton held off the six-woman field to triumph in the final ahead of French duo Sandie Clair and Virginie Cueff. 

In the men's sprint, Hoy beat team-mate Matt Crampton in the quarter-finals before defeating world champion Gregory Bauge 2-0 in the best-of-three semi-final.

Hoy, though, then suffered a 2-0 loss to Frenchman Kevin Sireau in the final and had to settle for silver.

Laura Trott was fifth in the women's omnium after winning the last of the six events, the 500metres time-trial.

Britain did not have a squad in the men's team pursuit, which was won by New Zealand.
