Sir Bradley Wiggins says anything but gold will be a “disappointment” in Rio, as he admits he’s rethinking retiring at the end of the year as planned.

The 36-year-old was officially named in Team GB’s squad for the Rio Games this August, what will be his fifth Olympics since his debut in Sydney in 2000, and will become Britain’s most decorated Olympian if he wins any medal. Chris Hoy holds the record with seven – six gold and one silver – while Wiggins currently has four gold, one silver and two bronze.
