Wiggins 'blown away' by praise

Bradley Wiggins says he is "humbled" by the reaction of other sporting stars after his success in this year's Tour de France.

Wiggins is poised to become the first Briton to ever win the Tour de France after victory in Saturday's time trial extends his lead to three minutes, 21 seconds.

Wiggins says that as a cycling fan he "realises what he has accomplished" but insists that does not make it any easier for it to sink in.

He also discusses Sir Chris Hoy's comment that if he were to win the tour it would be the greatest ever achievement by a British sportsperson.
