Former Oasis and current Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has joined the growing cue of rock stars to pay their respects to Olympic gold medalist and 2012 Tour De France champion Bradley Wiggins.
Wiggins, who has made headlines in the UK as much for his sharp mod style and love for bands such as The Jam and Small Faces as he has for his sporting triumphs, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement prize at last night’s (September 4th) GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London. (Video)
“Obviously someone who, like, y’know, gives his missus a foot massage every minute of the day and takes the dogs for walks and puts the dishwasher on and, like, y’know wins gold medals at riding a bike really fast,” Liam said in inimitable tone when asked by ITN, ‘what makes a real man?’.
Since triumphing at the Olympic Games last month, the likes of Paul Weller and Who frontman Roger Daltrey have also been quick to make their admiration for Wiggins’ unique character known to the wider world.Just Published:
