Chris Hoy ended his Olympic career in style this summer as he picked up two gold medals at the velodrome in London to become Great Britain's most successful Olympian ever.
He took his tally to five gold medals as he picked up three in Beijing four years ago and brought the curtain down on a glittering Olympic career.
But this is not the last that we will be seeing of Hoy as he hopes, fitness permitting, to compete at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
However Hoy is already looking to the future and admits that he could walk away completely from the sport that he loves and my mentor in the future.
Speaking to the Metro Hoy said: ‘I could never walk away from cycling. I love it.
‘A lot of former riders now coach and you see them live every moment of every race with their riders. I can see the attraction in that.
‘They have to be even more committed than the riders, though. They can’t miss a session, and whether I’m ready for that straight away I’m not sure.
‘But I could be involved in a mentoring role. It would be something to get my teeth into.’
Hoy picked up his gold medals in keirin and the team sprint in what was another dominant performance from the GB cycling team.
