Disappointment for Cavendish and Wiggins

Bradley Wiggins had to settle for just two Olympic golds from the Beijing Games after he and Madison partner Mark Cavendish failed to get a medal.

Wiggins, who had already won the team and individual pursuits, and four-time Tour de France winner Cavendish finished eighth with the gold going to Argentina.

Silver went to Spain and Russia took bronze.

Chris Hoy will attempt to win his third gold of the Games in the final of the sprint later today.
