The feat was made all the more remarkable as it comes just seven months after he fractured his thigh bone in a crash.

The Newtownards cyclist won Saturday's points race in the omnium event and then, kept pace in Sunday's action.

Russian Victor Manakov won gold, with Dutchman Tim Veldt finishing runner-up.

Earlier this year, in Belarus, Irvine became the first Irishman to win a World Track Championship cycling gold medal in 117 years.
