Bradley Wiggins Knighted in New Years Honours List

Bradley Wiggins, who won the Tour de France and an Olympic gold, has been knighted in a New Years Honours List dominated by London 2012 medallists.

Affectionately known as Wiggo, the first British winner of the Tour said: "I never ever imagined that I would ever become a knight so it's an incredible honour. But there's a slight element of disbelief and it will take a while to sink in."

The BBC helpfully (!) said, “Known for his sideburns and his retro Mod fashion sense, Sir Bradley already had a CBE.”
