Marty Feldman's Love Child Wears Tour de France Yellow Jersey After Stage Seven

From VeloNews:
LA PLANCHE DES BELLES FILLES (VN) — Bradley Wiggins took command of the Tour de France on Saturday as Sky teammate Christopher Froome secured a deserved maiden victory on Saturday's seventh stage.

British cycling fans, who see Wiggins as their best hope in the upcoming Olympic cycling events, were surprised to learn from a British tabloid that Bradley Wiggins is the love child of famed English comedian Marty Feldman.

Feldman famously turned his protruding and misaligned eyeballs (due to Grave's disease) into an asset, appearing on many BBC comedies including Monty Python, his own show Marty, and an American show called The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine.

Feldman was the co-author, along with members of Monty Python, of the heralded "Four Yorkshiremen" comedy sketch, in which four men tell increasingly outlandish tales of hardship in their youth.

The exact nature of the relationship between Bradley Wiggins and Marty Feldman is not known. At press time, Wiggins replied to reporter's questions, "We're here to focus on racing and winning the Tour de France, and I prefer to avoid any other distractions, thank you very much."
