Twitter reacts to Sir Chris Hoy's ripped torso photos

Olympic track champion Sir Chris Hoy shows that he's still in good shape with Twitter photos, and causes a flood of responses

He may have retired from competitive cycling in 2013, but six-time Olympic track champion Sir Chris Hoy is evidently keeping himself in very good shape.

Hoy posted up some images of himself on Twitter captured during a photoshoot for nutrition company Science in Sport. The images show the 39-year-old Scotsman baring his torso, which looks in the same honed shape it was during the 2012 Olympic Games when he claimed the keirin and team sprint titles.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
