Fastest man on a bike over an hour gets interrupted while trying to enjoy fast food

If you're of a certain age, you'll remember the Spitting Image TV show's hit single, The Chicken Song. Well, five-time Olympic gold medallist and 2012 Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins got his own version of that on Tuesday, when he posted a video to social media that showed his reaction to a waiter bursting into song while he was trying to finish his chicken meal.

With nearly 200 retweets and more than 500 likes on Twitter, the former Team Sky rider's tweeted video went viral - though happily, not in a Bird Flu kind of way.

His face is a picture, though.

If Spitting Image were still around today, given his sporting profile, it's likely a likeness of Wiggins would have popped up on the show at some point.

We'll just have to remember Gazza's tears instead.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
