Cycling couple get married in Yorkshire

Wedding bells for Philip Deignan and Lizzie Armitstead

They’re one of sport’s best known couples - and today they tied the knot.

Team Sky cyclist Philip Deignan from Letterkenny and Olympian Lizzie Armitstead got married in Lizzie’s home town of Otley in West Yorkshire.

Family and friends gathered for the celebration with crowds of well wishers gathered in the autumn sunshine outside the Victorian church.

Ironically Lizzie was held up on her way to the Church when her vintage coach got caught behind a loan cyclist.

Lizzie who finished fifth in the road race at the recent Rio Olympics, was accompanied up the aisle by her flower girls and bridesmaids, who donned full-length dresses in varying shades of green - thought to be a nod to Philip's Irish roots.
