• 2012 Tour winner wants to put sporting success behind him
• ‘I don’t give a shit about my cycling career. I’m detached from it’
Sir Bradley Wiggins has revealed he is taking a degree in social work as he looks to redefine himself after his cycling career.
The 39-year-old was the first Briton to win the Tour de France in 2012 and took Olympic time trial gold just days later, but said he no longer wants to be defined by his sporting success and is instead trying to find ways to help people.
