Video: Sir Bradley Wiggins and The Chicken Song goes viral

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.
