A track cyclist who competed at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 has died at the age of 28, Scottish Cycling has announced.

John Paul, who was originally from Lybster, competed against his idol Sir Chris Hoy during his promising career. He became world junior sprint champion in 2011 and was also a double European champion at junior level.

In the seniors, he represented Scotland at Glasgow 2014, where he qualified for the semi-final of the Keirin at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

Scottish Cycling said John was a "brilliant cyclist" and "a wonderful person both on and off the bike".
