Bradley Wiggins has called for a further investigation into the ordering of banned substance testosterone to Team Sky and British Cycling headquarters in 2011 after the Medical Practitioners Tribunal (MPTS)  found Dr Richard Freeman guilty of ordering the banned drug “knowing or believing” it was to be given to an unnamed rider to improve their athletic performance.

“The whole thing stinks to high heaven. It’s been ten years now but it wants looking into further. Yes, he’s been found guilty and it falls on his head but who else’s head does it fall on? Now, can we look into it a bit more and ask ‘what exactly happened? Someone must know?'” Wiggins said during a Eurosport podcast published on Monday.
