Mark Cavendish targets London Olympic glory after Tour

Mark Cavendish tells BBC Breakfast he aims to get Great Britain off to a good start at the London 2012 Olympics by winning the first medal on offer, in the men's road race on 28 July.

Cavendish, admits completing in the Tour de France just six days before that is not ideal preparation but says competing in London has given him extra motivation.

The 26-year-old, who last weekend became Britain's first male world road race champion for 46 years, is also the first Briton to win the green jersey as top Tour de France sprinter.
