Wiggins paints the town gold after Olympic triumph

LONDON

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."
