Laura Trott climbed out of her sickbed to compete and win in the Commonwealth Games 25km points race on Sunday.
But only days earlier she had been struggling to keep down anything but porridge following a nasty kidney infection, which was diagnosed last Thursday.
Despite this, she pulled on her white and red cycling attire including sports socks to participate in the competition.
After the race had ended, Trott was so shattered that she didn't even realise she had won, as she mistakenly congratulated her British team-mate!
The 22-year-old Harlow ace became England's second cycling gold medallist in the same month England staged the historic start to the Tour de France.
Trott said the Glasgow win bears comparison with her pair of Olympic golds two years ago at London 2012.
