In fact, children from Newtown are not only the official city cheerleaders of gold medallist and Tour de France victor Bradley Wiggins, but also of reigning world road racing champion Mark Cavendish.

Teacher Darren Glynn, Newtown’s PE co-ordinator, said: “They are really excited. They have been watching the Olympics and some watched the Tour de France too.

“We’re going to be making sure we have our Bradley Wiggins-style sideburns and Team Sky flags.”
