    12 British cyclists won Gold in London.

    Of those Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Bradley Wiggins could definitely be called 'icons' to sports fans at least. The likes of Victoria Pendleton, Laura Trott and Jason kenny are also household names here.

    Having said that the use of the word 'icon' seems to come from a French indictment and I can't imagine any of them being described in that way. Although Wiggins did win the Tour de France so may be seen in those terms abroad).

    This is clearly a T&F competitor.

    We all know who it's referring to.

    Exactly, but as Canuck said I'm not sure about how iconish (made that up) the others are?

    If it's Farah that would be tragic.

    Could it be that Balakhnichev was referring to the list of blood values later leaked by the Fancy Bears? Farah was on that list as "likely doping".

    How many times do we have the same rumour and then nothing comes of it. This place is worse than LR sometimes! I will be greatly surprised if anything comes of this and it doesn’t turn out to be another smoke and mirrors smearing

    Even if nothing ever comes of it, I don't find comments regarding a story in the media the least bit out of line.
