Wout van Aert again confirmed his incredible array of cycling talents at the UCI Road World Championships in Imola, finishing second to Italy's Filippo Ganna in the elite men's time trial.

The Tour de France ended just five days ago but Van Aert was still strong, pulling 20 seconds back on Ganna in the second half of the course as the tailwind blew them – at an average of 57kph – back to the motor racing circuit.
