Shane Sutton to make full recovery from crash injuries

Sutton to make full recovery
British Cycling say Shane Sutton is expected to recover fully from injuries sustained in a bike crash.

Shane Sutton is expected to make a full recovery from injuries sustained in a bike crash earlier this week.

The head coach of British Cycling was diagnosed with bleeding on the brain after colliding with a Peugeot car while cycling in Manchester.

A statement from British Cycling said: "Shane is making steady progress but is likely to remain in hospital for one more day under observation.

"He has fractured his cheekbone which will require surgery in due course. He is expected to make a complete recovery and will be back in work shortly."

The incident happened just hours after Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins sustained rib and hand injuries in a collision with a van in Wrightington, Lancashire.
