Commentators @malodoherty & @EJWoolf debate cycling in Lycra after @chrishoy apology for saying it looked "awful" on anyone weighing more than 8st
Cyclist Sir Chris Hoy has apologised for saying Lycra looked "awful" on anyone weighing more than 8st. The six-time Olympic gold medalist took to Twitter to say he was "really sorry" for the comment, which he described as "tongue-in-cheek"
Sir Chris told GQ magazine "Avoid skimpy, fluorescent sportswear unless you are whippet-thin because 'it looks pretty awful."
The comments caused uproar amongst mamils - that's middle aged men in lycra.
But should he have apologised?
