OLYMPIC golden boy Jason Kenny is certainly Team GB’s Golden Retriever — and now he has his own rescue dog named after him.

Battersea Dogs Home has called two of its residents Kenny and Trotty, in homage to cycle ace Jason and his record-breaking fiancée Laura Trott.

The golden couple have cleaned up on the medal front at the Rio Olympics and have been cheered on all the way by their new furry friends.

Bosses said the pair of pooches have been woofing in delight watching Jason win three golds in Brazil and Laura add another two gongs to her impressive collection.

Overall, the pair have won a staggering 10 Olympic golds between them, with Laura now the nation’s greatest female Olympian and Farnworth flyer Jason tying level with his friend and inspiration Sir Chris Hoy.

It was a “ruff” start to Jason’s final race on Tuesday night as the men’s Kierin was twice re-started before he finally sealed gold in dramatic fashion.

And his spaniel-cross namesake was seen jumping for joy as the 28-year-old made it six golds from three Olympic efforts.

For Trotty — a Shih Tzu-cross breed — it was an easier ride as Laura Trott cruised to victory in the Women’s Omnium final on Tuesday, with the patriotic pup running a victory lap around the Battersea kennels.

Trotty and Kenny were both brought into Battersea because their owners were no longer able to take care of them and like Laura and Jason they have become very close.

Battersea’s rehoming and welfare manager, Becky Fisher said: “Trotty and Kenny are great friends but, unlike their Olympic namesakes, they don’t come as a couple and will be looking for homes of their own.

“We hope they strike gold and quickly find owners who will give them the love and attention they deserve. Who knows, as our famous cycling couple are great dog owners, maybe they’ll be tempted by Battersea’s Trotty and Kenny?”
