Wiggins was honoured for services to cycling after winning seven Olympic medals and becoming the first Briton to win the Tour – the sport’s biggest event.
The 33-year-old Wiggins says on Tuesday “I’m glad it’s over” because “I’ve won a bike race, you know, and I feel a little bit inferior to everyone, really.”
Sir Bradley, as he is now known, was awarded the knighthood in the queen’s New Year’s honours list.
