Cycling coach in hospital after bike accident

SHANE Sutton, the Australian head coach of the British cycling team, has been taken to hospital with bleeding on the brain following a road accident on his bike.

The incident in Manchester on Thursday morning came less than 24 hours after Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, also a member of Team Sky, was involved in a crash near his home in northern England.

Wiggins, the 2012 Olympics time-trial gold medallist, was thrown off his bike when hit by a vehicle believed to have pulled out of a petrol station in Wrightington on Wednesday evening.

Lancashire police said the 32-year-old suffered broken ribs and a wrist injury and had spent the night in hospital.

He gave photographers the middle finger as he was driven away from hospital.
