Elinor Barker wins points race gold medal for Great Britain

Pervis won the 1km time trial by 0.334sec from compatriot Quentin Lafargue and Czech rider Tomas Babek, who shared silver after a rare dead heat.

Barker also claimed silver in the scratch race and Madison, with Emily Nelson, while the sole male medal was bronze for Chris Latham in the scratch race.

Barker led the field after the fourth sprint but Hammer gained a lap in the penultimate sprint to take the lead with 51 points.

Barker said: "I'm quite disappointed by that, but really lucky they came to support me".

In the women's team pursuit, the United States retained its world title by beating Australia.

The competition starts on Wednesday, which will feature the men's team sprint and Barker riding in the women's scratch race.

France's Benjamin Thomas (L) and Morgan Kneisky celebrate with their gold medals.

They accrued 45 points to finish four clear of Australian pair Cameron Meyer and Callum Scotson. "It was hard the first two and three days and the morale of the French team was so good that everyone was motivated to give everything in the end of the week".

Only the top four-ranked teams have a chance to make the gold medal ride-off, but Britain will hope to be one of the two fastest losers to contest the race for bronze.

The Malaysian, a bronze medallist at the Rio Olympics, stormed past his rivals on the home straight and even had time for a flamboyant, albeit low, wheelie over the line as he became a world champion for the first time. Russian Federation finished third with three golds and a bronze.

New omnium world champion Katie Archibald couldn't back up the previous day's rainbow jersey success as she missed out on a bronze medal ride in the individual pursuit.
