Six-time Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Sir Chris Hoy provided Twitter with a podium-worthy effort in savagery yesterday, after somebody asked him how they could follow in his footsteps and have a train named after them.
Alongside a picture of the 'Sir Chris Hoy' train, Adam Tranter tweeted at the 41-year-old cyclist: "Hi Chris, when I grow up I'd like to have a train named after me too. Any tips? (Can't involve cycling fast)."
Let's face it, that's probably the lamest tweet to the Twittersphere since a dick pic appeared in Ian Botham's Twitter feed, before the former England cricketer claimed he was hacked.
This is how Sir Chris Hoy responded to Tranter:
As you can imagine Twitter was loving it:
:joy: Tranter could be considered as a short form of train banter, so therefore any train could be named after you :wink:
