Great Britain’s victorious male track cyclists could have been forgiven for having one too many in the wake of their stunning team pursuit victory over Australia on Friday evening.

However, their female counterparts in Team GB appeared to be in no mood to accommodate any drunken antics in the athletes’ village last night.

Great Britain’s women made sure they would get a good night’s rest for their own team pursuit final on Saturday – by warning the men’s team to stay out of their room in the early hours of the morning.

Olympic champion Owain Doull took to Twitter to post a picture of a letter pinned to the girls’ room – warning the victorious men’s team to stay out.

The note read: ‘To the team pursuit men, CONGRATULATIONS! As we’re guessing you’re probably going to be drunk by the time you read this.

‘And a few of you have already come into our room accidentally – just a friendly reminder that THIS IS NOT YOUR ROOM.

‘So please don’t try and get in a 4am.’
