Sir Chris Hoy asked for ID to enter Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

Sir Chris Hoy, Great Britain’s most decorated Olympian, took a break from rescuing awkward social situations involving Queen Elizabeth II to take in some action at the Commonwealth Games.

He was stopped by security as he tried to enter the venue named after him.

That's right: Sir Chris Hoy, one of the most recognizable athletes in Scotland, needed to show ID to enter the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.

BBC Radio reported that the girl responsible exclaimed, “My mum’s going to kill me!”

To his eternal credit, the cycling legend came to the girl’s aid via Twitter.
