British Cycling and Team Sky coach Shane Sutton believes that wearing a cycling helmet saved his life when he suffered a crash earlier this month.
The 55-year-old was hit by a car at a petrol station in Lancashire that saw him suffer bleeding on the brain, and Sutton has revealed that he does not remember anything about the crash.
Sutton told BBC Sport: "I remember nothing. From 8.40am in the morning until 12.20pm in the afternoon, not a thing.
"For me, [wearing a helmet] was very important, but that is a personal thing. A lot of people have serious accidents with helmets and without. On this occasion I was glad I had a helmet on.
"But that's a personal thing, it is like a bike. You buy a particular kind of bike and a particular kind of helmet. For me, it saved my life. I don't feel 100% at the moment, I am just sitting in the stands, quite relaxed. It is going to take time, the doctors said that."
