Five-time Olympic champion Sir Bradley Wiggins has announced his retirement from cycling aged 36.

Britain’s first Tour de France winner, in 2012, said he had fulfilled a “childhood aspiration” of making a career out of the sport.

“I’ve met my idols and ridden alongside the best for 20 years,” he said.
