He carried out a lap around the yard and gave advice as pupils whizzed off on their bikes.

Headteacher Rhona O'Neill said: "Chris Hoy was our prize for winning a poetry competition run by Evans Cycles. 

"It was a great morning - he had a tour of the school and met all the pupils and staff.

"He then did a question and answer assembly with the whole school followed by a cycling coaching session with the class. He then joined the winning class to listen to the poem they had written and answer any questions."
