"I'm gutted about the crash today," Cavendish said on Saturday night.

"It was my fault. I'll personally apologise to Simon Gerrans as soon as I get the chance.

I tried to find a gap that wasn't really there.

"I wanted to win today.

"Sorry to all the fans that came out to support."

Crash scuppers Cavendish TdF bid

Cavendish out of the Tour de France

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.
