Someone is walking around with Bradley Wiggins' body-hugging Lycra.

Foxhills, the country spa hotel hosting the British cycling team, confirmed Tuesday that the Tour de France winner's training gear was stolen from a locker room while the athletes were having a steamy soak.

"Watch your kit at the Foxhills spa in Surrey, there is a tea leaf about," Wiggins tweeted. "Tea leaf" is Cockney slang for thief.

Many of the cyclist's 325,000 followers offered messages of sympathy. "Hope you did not have to sprint back to the room in the buff," tweeted one.
