New cycling world champion Elinor Barker tells BBC Sport that she has taken some unusual luggage to Minsk - her school homework

A-level student Barker, 18, teamed up with Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Dani King to defend the world team pursuit title in Belarus. Barker is currently combining her cycling career with doing her exam coursework.

The Great Britain team clocked three minutes 18.140 seconds to beat Australia's Annette Edmondson, Ashlee Ankudinoff and Melissa Hoskins by 1.773 seconds.
