British cyclist Mark Cavendish suffered two broken ribs and a collapsed lung after a serious fall at the Six Days of Gent, announced his Deceuninck Quick-Step team on Monday.

Cavendish rode at the Madison on Sunday when the Danish world and Olympic champion Lasse Norman Hansen fell in front of him after Gerben Thijssen slipped on a wet spot on the track.

The 36-year-old, winner of 34 record-breaking stages in the Tour de France, crashed into the Dane’s bike and let him fall to the ground.

“Research showed that Mark had two broken ribs on that left side and a small pneumothorax (collapse of the lungs), both of which were medicated. He was kept in hospital for observation,” Deceuninck told Quick-Step.

“Mark is expected to be released either this morning or tomorrow morning and then undergo some recovery period.”
