I'd put money on it.
Let's hope not then, if his comments about compulsory helmets were accurately reported.Then again he could use the 'enchanced platform' to speak out as a cycling ambassador kind of thing...his comments this morning about helmets could be an indication this is possible...?
I hope that he turns it down too. I cannot understand the clamour for him to be offered it. There's also a pro-knigthood/anti-knigthhood battle going on elsewhere which is embarrassing in the extreme to witness. David Bowie did the right thing when he was offered one.If offered a knighthood I would hope he would turn it down...he gives anti-establishment vibes and jibes out all the time.
Wiggins was already a multiple Olympic Gold medal winner 4 years ago. So you could argue that he should already have a knighthood and with this gold and other achievements he should be upgraded to something beyond that.probably inevitable since the other olympic multi-medal winners (Hoy, Redgrave, Pinsent) have them already.....
The DailyMash already appointed him King of the Fields and Streams. Just quoting that piece for the sake of it on a tenuous link to this thread, still find it funny .I think he should be made King Bradley, Lord of everything, we can chuck that German lot out then.
Quite! I know which I'd rather, unfortunately I'm more likely to get a knighthood, haven't got a clue what for though - being a nobber maybe.Blabbering about whether he should or should not get a knighthood is irrelevant, and pointless.
He is Tour de France champion, he is Olympic gold TT champion, and he won the raffle as well I believe.
