An interview with Sir Bradley Wiggins will be broadcast on the Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, where it is reported the 2012 Tour de France champion will explain his use of triamcinolone.

Details of therapeutic use exemptions for the drug were leaked by hackers last week, showing that Wiggins was administered the medication via intramuscular injections ahead of the 2011 and 2012 Tours de France and 2013 Giro d'Italia to treat a pollen allergy.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by Wiggins or by Team Sky, with the TUEs signed off by UCI doctors on each occasion.

Tweets by Rob Burley, editor of the Andrew Marr Show, show Wiggins being interviewed by Marr for the programme which is broadcast on BBC One at 9am on Sunday morning.
