A strong ride from the 20-year-old from Oldham saw him triumph in a points race in which the lead changed hands several times.

Walls claimed gold with 131 points, with Mexican Ignacio Prado Juarez second on 123 and Italian Elia Viviani third with 114.

Victory completed a full set of medals for Walls after he won bronze in the team pursuit and madison silver alongside Fred Wright.
