Sir Bradley Wiggins became Britain’s most decorated Olympian with a world-record performance in the men’s cycling team pursuit on Friday night.

The 36-year-old is the first athlete from Britain to win eight Olympic medals. Alongside teammates Ed Clancy, Owain Doull and Steven Burke, Wiggins completed the 4km race in three minutes, 50.265 seconds to beat Australia by almost a second.

Having seen it all before, Wiggins couldn’t help himself but have some fun while ‘God Save The Queen’ was playing during the medal ceremony.

Wiggins hails teammates

"These three guys here are amazing," Wiggins said of his teammates, per BBC Sport, after the race.

"It's hard not to come off the track and spout a load of cliches but really, the last 12 months we have done everything together - training camps at altitude, early starts and late finishes, cycling on Christmas Day.

"It was all for this and we've done it. When you have guys like that it makes your life easier. It was fantastic."
