Sir Bradley Wiggins has said of his knighthood:
I never ever imagined that I would ever become a knight so it's an incredible honour.
But there's a slight element of disbelief and it will take a while to sink in.
It's not something I'll use on a daily basis, but it's nice to have in the trophy cabinet as the ultimate accolade as a sportsman, being knighted by your country for not only the success this year but 12 years now of consistent work and performing - four Olympic Games, seven medals.
He added: "There was never any doubt whether I'd accept it or not, it was more a case that I never saw myself as a sir, and I probably never will."
