Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins is set to star in the popular Radio 4 soap, The Archers, as part of The BBC’s Sport Relief campaign. The cameo role will see cyclist Wiggins play himself as he encounters Lynda Snell (played by Carole Boyd) and her rusty bike.

"When I was asked to record a Sport Relief special for The Archers, there was no way I could turn it down," he said. "I grew up with it on the radio in the house."
