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.
