Great Britain has been utterly dominant in cycling at the Olympics. The British took gold in seven of 10 track cycling events and added another in road cycling thanks to Bradley Wiggins. All told, Team GB has received 12 total medals in 14 completed events.
Naturally, this has led to accusations of cheating from Great Britain's eternal rivals to the south, France. Accusations that British Prime Minister David Cameron scoffs at rather amusingly.
"We've got a system that seems to be delivering. It's driving the French mad," Cameron told BBC Radio 2. "I did an interview with French television yesterday and they virtually accused us of cheating."
"I think they found the Union Jacks on the Champs Elysee a bit hard to take," Cameron added referencing Wiggins winning the Tour de France last month.
An interviewer from France 2 television echoed the sentiment of French cycling technical director Isabelle Gautheron and those polled by national newspaper L'Equipe that the Brits were using "magic wheels," but Cameron countered by saying French manufacturer Mavic is responsible for Team GB's wheels.
"The French should know our secret because you make our wheels," he said.
"You know, they're round. They go fast because they pedal hard."
Surprised by the sharp tongue? Evidently, you haven't seen Prime Minster's Questions.
