Bradley Wiggins has been criticised for attempting to claim Irish cyclist Sam Bennett as British.

Speaking on Eurosport after Bennett won a stage of the Tour de France, Wiggins said, "We can almost consider him British."

He then turned to Sean Kelly, who was also appearing on the programme, and added: "I know that you lot won't like that, will you?"

Wiggins continued: "At least we can understand what he's saying, we can't understand what you're saying Sean, can we?"

Brianna Parkins and Eoghan Tomás McDermott joined us to discuss this and more in The Week Trending.
