Sprint specialist Mark Cavendish has become the latest member of Britain's cycling team to be involved in a bike crash after hitting the back of a car during a training run in Italy.

The 2011 world road race champion says on Twitter he sustained a bruised arm after a car in front slammed on the brakes, but he is "relatively ok."

Cavendish's accident came two weeks after Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins and British Cycling head coach Shane Sutton were hospitalised after being knocked off their bikes.

Wiggins spent one night in the hospital with bruised ribs and hands when he was hit by a car. Sutton had surgery on a broken cheekbone and also sustained bruising and bleeding to the brain, but has already returned to work.

For sure. Cameron will knock him out.

It will be close but I think Cameron on points.

Meehan will knock him out. This is his last fight.
