"I don't know anything about politics or economic policy. But I've listened to a lot of people having a good old moan over the years. You meet interesting characters when you're out on a bike," Wiggins told the BBC.

"I told them I'd do this show if I could shine the spotlight on stuff that interests me.

"Like did London 2012 do any good? Where is the next generation of Bradley Wiggins going to come from? What actually happens to you when you retire? And why should anyone bother to vote for politicians?"

Guest-editors have been used over the Christmas period by Today since 2003 - previous editors have included Professor Stephen Hawking and Yoko Ono.

Jamie Angus, editor of the Today Programme, said: "It's fantastic to have Bradley leading out the programme and to hear his take on the impact of sport on British culture."
