Cycling report ‘not a whitewash’ – Phelps

British cycling’s two most senior figures should resign in the wake of an independent review into failings in the sport, an MP says.

Culture, Media and Sport select committee chairman Damian Collins MP has called for a “complete change”.

But British Cycling responded by saying his comments were “ill-informed”.

Former Olympic rider Jess Varnish also reacted angrily to the findings in the report, which was triggered by her claims of sexism and bullying.

“I am insulted. It shows what the people are like in there [British Cycling],” she told The Times.
