Français : Bradley Wiggins, vainqueur du Crité...

Sir Bradley Wiggins will receive his Knighthood for services to cycling today at an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Speaking after being named in the New Year’s Honours List, the cyclist said: “It’s quite something really.

“I never 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.

“There was never any doubt whether I’d accept it or not, it was more a case that I never saw myself as a Sir, and I probably never will.

“I don’t like profiting from status so it’s more for my family. It’s nice for my parents and grandparents to be able to say I’m a knight, and for my kids in the future.”
