After becoming Britain's most decorated Olympian, Bradley Wiggins showed his endurance extends beyond the roads.

Wiggins won the time trial Wednesday for his seventh Olympic medal, then marked the moment by getting "blind drunk." It was a very public binge, with the cyclist posting messages and pictures on Twitter as he celebrated gold near St. Paul's Cathedral.

"Getting wasted," he tweeted, accompanied by a picture, posing with a drink and flicking the V for victory sign.

And Wiggins wasn't slowing down.

Later, the Tour de France champion tweeted: "Blind drunk at the minute ... it's been emotional."

British Olympic chief Colin Moynihan says Wiggins was "thoroughly entitled to have a fantastic party."
