The cream, best (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'the cream' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'best' is the second definition.
(elite can mean the very best of a group)

(Other definitions for elite that I've seen before include "Identified as the best" , "A privileged group in society" , "Group considered to have superior status" , "Letter size; superior group" , "Superior group in society" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
