Amid all the coronavirus panic, here is a bit of news to lighten the mood. Tonight, on Comedy Central, 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins makes his debut in 'Gods of the Game'.

A brand-new game show that pits British sporting legends against humble average Joes, Wiggins plays an all-seeing giant overlord gameshow host setting challenges while forming a comedy duo with Tom Rosenthal, the son of sports broadcasting legend Jim.

The show will feature Olympic gold medalists Rebecca Adlington, Nicola Adams, Mo Farah and Chris Hoy as well as the likes of Micheal Owen and James Anderson as they take on the public in sporting challenges that are loosely based on their careers.

For example, tonight's episode will see Hoy racing someone in a pedalo.

It looks like Wiggins's involvement is reduced to the odd grumble with a voice modulator that makes him sound like a grumpy Sid James.

Either way, it should be a laugh and at only half an hour long, it is probably worth a bit of your time.
