Mark Cavendish: British cyclist ‘overwhelmed’ by support after suffering serious injuries in crash

BBC News says Mark Cavendish said he had been “overwhelmed” by messages of support after suffering two broken ribs and a collapsed lung in a crash at the Six Days of Ghent on Sunday.

The 36-year-old British cyclist was competing in the Madison when Olympic and world champion Lasse Norman Hansen crashed in front of him.

He then rode into the Dane’s bike, sending him crashing to the floor.

After initial treatment, Cavendish was taken to hospital on a stretcher.

In a statement, Cavendish’s team Deceuninck – Quick-Step said: “Examinations showed that Mark has suffered two broken ribs on this left side and has a small pneumothorax [collapsed lung], both of which have been treated with medication. He has been kept in the hospital for observation.
