British cyclist Bradley Wiggins won his fourth gold medal on Wednesday and gave the host country its first gold medal of the Olympics. It was a good day for Wiggins, and he is now finished competing. What does he do to celebrate?

"Well what a day, blind drunk at the minute and overwhelmed with all the messages, Thank You everyone it's been emotional X" a post on his Twitter feed stated.

That's right - he gets blind drunk. According to the Associated Press, his drink of choice is a vodka tonic, and something tells me he's not having to pull out his wallet very often.

He absolutely should celebrate his win. Before the Olympics, he won Tour de France, the most grueling of road races. Five days later, he had a starring role in the Opening Ceremony, then won a gold.

He earned that vodka tonic.
