After four years of intense training, the question is often raised how Olympians will be celebrating after clinching Gold.

For Sir Bradley Wiggins, it might seem like par for the course, winning his eighth medal and fifth gold as part of the Men's Team Pursuit in the cycling this weekend.

However, team-mate Owen Doull has now revealed Wiggins was evidently rather excited by their victory, leading the celebrations well into the night.

When asked whether he'd been "led astray" by the older athlete, Doull admitted to the BBC:

"He's the worst! Good tear-up last night, I'll be honest.

"He leads by example, whether that's on the bike or off the bike."

"I haven't slept," he added.

"To get back to the apartment and see that gold medal on the was surreal."

Deserved celebrations 

In what will surely be his last Olympics, Wiggins was widely praised for his leadership in the GB camp, making sure he went out in style.

Team GB have now consolidated third place in the medals table, with cycling playing no small part in that.

Wiggins, Doull, Mark Cavendish, Ed Clancy, and Steven Burke clearly made the most of what was undoubtedly a huge achievement, but it's no surprise who was at the forefront of the party.
