Bradley previously shaved off his Mod cut in favor of a close shaved do, while also growing a bushy Hipster-style beard.

He accessorized his edgy look with round tortoiseshell glasses and added a pair of clean white sneakers as well.

Fans of the former sportsman were shocked to see him use the cigarette plug and took to the comments section to share their thoughts.

At the end of his cycling career in 2016, Bradley began training in social work and also hoped for a spot at the Tokyo Olympics as a rower.

He told Big Issue magazine in 2019: ‘I don’t give a damn about my cycling career now. I just got rid of it, I don’t want to live from it.

‘I live to be myself, and I am happy in my own skin.’

Bradley and Laura had been introduced to each other by a mutual friend, and after finishing it, Bradley even took the plunge to move in with her.

News that the couple were dating emerged last year, just six months after the Tour de France winner’s divorce from 16-year-old Catherine in May.

Bradley had initially kept his new relationship a secret, but he has now moved into Laura’s London home.

His ex-wife Cath has stayed in Preston with their two children, Ben, 14, and Isabella, 12.
