Doping 'the worst thing to be accused of', says Wiggins

UKAD said its investigation was "hampered by a lack of accurate medical records being available at British Cycling".

Bradley Wiggins has described claims he may have broken anti-doping rules as "the worst thing to be accused of" and says he is looking forward to eventually having his say on the matter.

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is currently investigating whether Team Sky violated rules during the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine, when a medical package used to treat Wiggins was sent to the team from the UK.

Five-time Olympic champion and 2012 Tour de France winner Wiggins strongly denies any wrongdoing, while Team Sky are also insistent they have not broken any rules. 

Team principal Dave Brailsford recently stated: "There is a fundamental difference between process failures and wrongdoing."

In an interview with Soccer AM on Saturday, Wiggins said: "It's been horrible. Fortunately there is an investigation going on.

"It's the worst thing to be accused of when you're a man of my integrity, what I believe anyway and what I've done to get to where I am today.

"But fortunately there is an investigation and obviously I can't say too much, because that will run its course and then I'll have my say.

"There's a lot to say and it's going to shock a few people."
