Jason Kenny: Coaching Laura would be a ‘waste of time… she wouldn’t listen to me!’

We talked to Jason Kenny just two days after he and Laura Kenny – ‘cycling’s golden couple’ according to the tabloids – had collected their honours, a knighthood for him and a damehood for her, at Windsor Castle in May.

First of all, how does it feel to be Sir Jason?

“It feels the same as being not Sir Jason to be honest,” Kenny replies, as if being awarded a knighthood hasn’t quite sunk in. “It was one of those surreal days that happen from time to time in the life of an athlete.”

The tabloids reported that Prince William asked Jason if, now that he’s retired to coach Team GB’s men’s sprint squad (opens in new tab)he would also be coaching Laura.
