Bradley Wiggins reportedly celebrated his Sports Personality Of The Year victory by picking up a guitar and playing songs by Oasis and The Jam.

Wiggins, known for his Mod style and love of music, picked up the BBC award ahead of fellow gold medallists Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah at the London awards ceremony last night (Dec 16). The Metro reports that the show's afterparty featured a live band, Ray Parfitt Jnr's band, whom Wiggins performed with as an impromptu guitarist. According to the paper, the Tour De France champion began by playing 'That's Entertainment' by The Jam with a nearby security guard providing vocals. Following the first song, Wiggins then played 'Wonderwall' by Oasis. Scroll down and click to see a video of the latter.

Wiggins was named BBC Sports Personality Of The Year after winning two gold medals at the London Olympics as well as winning the Tour De France in July. Wiggins became the most successful British Olympic athlete ever in terms of medals won. The 32 year-old won his fourth gold medal at the men's cycling time trial and seventh Olympic medal in total.

Speaking to NME about his musical taste earlier this year, Wiggins said: "These aren’t necessarily just for training or anything, music is just a constant in my life." The cyclist was handed a GQ Lifetime Achievement award by Liam Gallagher in September.
