LONDON

 Six-time Olympic champion Chris Hoy is expected to announce his retirement this week, Britain's domestic Press Association news agency said on Monday. The 37-year-old track cyclist, who first won gold in the 1km time-trial in Athens in 2004, has been considering his future after adding to his haul with two titles at the London Games last year.

The cyclist will hold a news conference in his home city of Edinburgh on Thursday.
