- 2012 Tour de France champion allegedly groomed aged 13
- Wiggins: ‘It impacted me as an adult … I buried it’
Sir Bradley Wiggins has alleged that he was sexually groomed by a coach when he was 13 years old. Wiggins, the first Briton to win the Tour de France and a three-time Olympic champion, said that he had “buried” what had happened because he had no one to turn to at the time.
“I was groomed by a coach when I was younger – I was about 13 – and I never fully accepted that,” Wiggins said in an interview with Men’s Health UK magazine about his allegations. Asked if he was groomed sexually, the 41-year-old added: “Yes. It all impacted me as an adult … I buried it.”
