SIR BRADLEY WIGGINS DESCRIBES ALLEGATIONS OF WRONGDOING AS ‘WORST THING TO BE ACCUSED OF’

Sir Bradley Wiggins has described the allegations of wrongdoing against him and Team Sky as the “worst thing to be accused of”.

Wiggins retired from cycling at the end of last year after nearly 20 years in the sport, winning five Olympic gold medals and the 2012 Tour de France.

The Culture, Media & Sport Select Committee was told toward the begin of March by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) chief executive Nicole Sapstead that its investigation into Team Sky had been hampered by a lack of records.

UKAD is investigating allegations that a package sent to the team, and used to treat Wiggins, contained the banned substance triamcinolone.

General manager of Team Sky Sir Dave Brailsford admitted earlier this month that they had made mistakes in relation to anti-doping and testing practices, though refuted “untrue” implications made because of them.

“It’s been horrible,” Wiggins told Soccer AM. “Fortunately there is an investigation going on, it’s the worst thing to be accused of when you’re a man of my integrity, what I believe anyway and what I’ve done to get to where I am today.”

“But there is an investigation and obviously I can’t say too much, because that will run its course and then I’ll have my say.”

“Of course I’ll have my say, there’s a lot to say and it’s going to shock a few people.”
