Isle of Man cyclist Mark Cavendish is out of the Tour de France, his team has confirmed.
It follows the shoulder injury he suffered on the first stage in Harrogate yesterday.
The pain of his injuries means he is no longer able to continue, a spokesman said.
It is the first time since 2008 - when he left prematurely to prepare for the Beijing Olympics - that Cavendish will not complete the Tour.
Isle of Man cyclist Mark Cavendish will learn today whether his Tour de France challenge will continue.
He crashed out of yesterday's opening stage and suffered an injury to his right shoulder which caused him "a lot of pain", his team Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling said.
"I'm gutted about the crash," Cavendish said.
"It was my fault. I'll personally apologise to Simon Gerrans as soon as I get the chance.
"In reality, I tried to find a gap that wasn't really there.
"I wanted to win today, I felt really strong and in a great position to contest the sprint thanks to the unbelievable efforts of my team.
"Sorry to all the fans that came out to support - it was truly incredible."
Hospital tests showed Cavendish suffered ligament ruptures with an AC-joint dislocation, which causes him a lot of pain, his team said in a statement.
A final decision on his participation in today's stage will be taken this morning.
Thousands of spectators, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Prime Minister David Cameron, were willing Cavendish on as the crash happened in Harrogate.
He came to grief in the town centre as his mother, Adele Towns, watched from the stands.
The VIPs looked as shocked as the masses of cycling fans crowded around the finish line when they heard the news over the speakers.
Cavendish was left on the ground clutching his shoulder after colliding with fellow competitor Simon Gerrans, injuring a joint between his right shoulder and collarbone.

A hospital trust in the Isle of Man has given a boost to the Air Ambulance service.
The Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital Welfare Trust have given £2,000 to help fund a helicopter loading path.
The path has been laid on the field adjacent to the Hospital, which is used as a loading area for the Air Ambulance helicopter.
It comes after staff suggested that it would allow a much smoother handover of patients from ambulance to helicopter.
It is expected that the new facility will be used more than 20 times during the year, with the majority of use during race periods of the TT and the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling.
Isle of Man Ambulance Clinical Manager, Steve Crowe said:
“We are grateful to the Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital Welfare Trustees who have once again supported the work of both the Hospital and the Isle of Man Ambulance Service.
This most recent donation to fund a pathway to the helicopter field will help to improve the care, treatment and movement of the patient from our vehicle to the aircraft.”
Thousands of people are putting their best foot forward for the 2014 Manx Telecom Parish Walk.
The walking race takes place on the Isle of Man each year and is the biggest walking event on the island.
The walk passes through every parish and covers a total distance of 85 miles (137 km).
Originally, walkers had to touch the door of each of the seventeen parish churches, but these days electronic timing chips are worn.
Participants have 24-hours to complete the walk.
