Get up off your seats people! Bradley Wiggins is the first ever British man to win the Tour De France !
If every paper you open and every website you click upon today seems to be showing a blur of yellow and images of a slim be-sideburned man grinning in sunglasses, there is good reason for this uniformity of coverage. The victory of Bradley Wiggins in the 2012 Tour de France is a feat of true greatness – the first triumph by a British rider in what must be considered the world's toughest sporting event, all three weeks and 2000 miles of it. You may already be annoyed at the hail tickertape – but, for once, the hype is justified.
