Olympic cyclist Ed Clancy took time out of his injury recovery programme to entertain youngsters at a Shelley school.
The two time gold medal winner and five time world champion showed children at Shelley First School his medals and a bike.
And he fielded questions from the youngsters, who asked him about his recovery from a serious back injury.
Clancy, a former pupil at Shelley High School, said: “I have a friend who has a couple of kids at Shelley First School and they asked if I could show them my medals and a bike or two.

“Chatting to the kids is always great fun. They are very refreshing with their outlook. And they are always pleased to see medals and bikes.”
He said his recovery from the back injury, which needed surgery, is going well.
He has reached about 80% in training, and is hopeful of being at full fitness for the Rio Olympics in August.
“It’s going pretty well. I’ve been working hard, going to and from the track, so being at the school and talking to the kids made a nice change.
“I was able to spend some time with each class, and it was very enjoyable.”
Clancy, who grew up in Denby Dale, Upperthong and Ingbirchworth, is a member of the Great British cycling team, and competes in the team pursuit and as an individual in the omnium, a multi race event.
He took gold in the team pursuit and bronze in the omnium at London 2012, and won gold in the 2008 Beijing team pursuit.
