When one mod met another! Olympic gold medal winner Bradley Wiggins parties with his idol Paul Weller

He may have taken home a gold medal in the London 2012 Olympics recently, but Bradley Wiggins looked much more chuffed about something else last night.
The 32-year-old cyclist spent his evening partying with Paul Weller at the adidas Underground party in London and looked so happy to be doing so.
The father-of-two is a well-known mod, and the singer is clearly one of his musical idols.

However, as the pair posed together at the event it was Weller who appeared to be in awe of Wiggins rather than the other way round.
Wearing a smart navy blue suit, a white shirt and a skinny tie, Wiggins towered over the 54-year-old singer as he draped his arm around him.
But Weller didn't seem to mind and smiled for the cameras wearing smart grey trousers, brown shoes and a light-coloured jumper, and of course both men were sporting a typical mod haircut.

The Jam star is clearly a huge fan of the sportsman as when Wiggins won gold at the beginning of the month, the singer's official Twitter page posted: 'Gold for @bradwiggins! Huge congratulations from all at Paul Weller HQ'
Wiggins became the first man to win the Tour de France and Olympic gold in the same year with an imperious victory in the London 2012 time-trial.
The Belgium-born star claimed his fourth Olympic gold and seventh medal in all, surpassing Sir Steve Redgrave with a British record haul of Games medals.

Wiggins was the penultimate of 37 riders to take to the course and completed the 44-kilometre route in 50 minutes 39 seconds to triumph by 42 seconds, with fellow Briton Chris Froome third in 51mins 47secs.
Wiggins later spent time posing with another Olympic gold medal winner in the form of Jessica Ennis.
Partygoers were treated to a special surprise performance from the Stone Roses and sipped on Absolut vodka cocktails.
