Olympic silver medal-winning cyclist Lizzie Armitstead has reassured fans that she is "ok but very sore" following a crash at the first stage of the Women's Tour in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.
As the 26-year-old crossed the finish line in first place, she raised her hands in a victory celebration and got caught by a spectator, sending her tumbling off her bike.
She was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken leg, but has confirmed that her injuries are less serious:
I remember winning with the help of my team mates and then not much else, but I am ok, nothing broken just very sore, thank you for all your
kind messages and to the NHS staff who took care of me so well. I won't start tomorrow in the hope of recovering properly for the Nationals.

Britain's Chris Froome won the penultimate stage of the Criterium du Dauphine on Saturday to move into second place in the race.
The Team Sky rider broke away from American Tejay van Garderen with around 1.5km to go on the final climb to win by 17 seconds.
Froome started the day one minute and 21 seconds behind Vincenzo Nibali, last year's Tour de France champion, but the Italian faded late in the race to leave his hopes in tatters.
Van Garderen now leads the Dauphine from Froome by 18 seconds going into the final stage of the race on Sunday, which ends with a summit finish.
I really couldn't be happier. The guys rode out of their skin today. I can't thank them enough.
I've got a bit to make up on Tejay still. I guess the race isn't over until it's over.
