The 24-year-old four time Olympic champion married eight time champion Mr Kenny, 28, in September last year. Her agent has reinforced the news, saying: “I can confirm that Laura Kenny is indeed pregnant and that she, Jason and their respective families are absolutely thrilled and delighted with the news. They very much appreciate all the kind wishes and messages of support that they have received already.”

Following the initial announcement, Kenny posted two more related images, the first of their two dogs hypothesising about the effect the newborn would have on their sleep…

Congratulations have poured in for the couple, though Mr Kenny took a slightly more amusing approach, responding with a tongue in cheek comment about the coming months:

With most Olympic cyclists taking some ‘down time’ after the Rio Olympics, and Tokyo 2020 still a long while away, the pregnancy seems like perfect planning – and of course the public has already started preparing for the baby’s future success:

We’d like to wish the couple a whole-hearted ‘congratulations’ – and we look forward to that runner bike being put to good use!
