Sir Bradley Wiggins has been retained on the British Cycling Olympic podium programme as he continues to mull over his competitive future in the sport.

The 36-year-old five-time Olympic champion and 2012 Tour de France winner had long suggested 2016 would be his final year as a competitive cyclist but has hinted at possibly continuing in recent weeks.

A British Cycling spokesperson said: "Sir Bradley Wiggins is continuing to consider the direction of his future and we are happy to give him the flexibility to allow him to do that."

The Olympic podium programme is the selection of British riders who get UK Sport funding and support and Wiggins is one of eight named in the men's track endurance squad.
