Sir Bradley Wiggins, the first British winner of the Tour de France and the country’s most successful Olympian.

Wiggins was knighted after his incredible 2012 season when he won the Tour and went on to win Britain’s second gold medal at the London Olympics, a result that was credited as starting the home nations gold rush. At the end of 2012 he was crowned BBC’s Sport’s Personality of the Year. Since then his career has levelled off as an attempt at the 2013 Giro d’Italia was halted due to a knee injury and illness.

Wiggins was controversially left out of Sky’s 2014 Tour de France squad In 2014 despite the race starting in the UK.
