Track cyclist Jess Varnish says she was “thrown under the bus” by British Cycling and was the victim of a “cover up”.

The 26-year-old was speaking in her first broadcast interview since last April when she made allegations of sexism at the governing body.

Varnish told BBC Sport she was “relieved that the truth was finally coming out” after she was dropped from British Cycling’s elite programme last year.
