Following a road traffic accident yesterday evening, we can confirm that Bradley Wiggins was released from hospital this afternoon.

He suffered minor injuries, including a bruised hand and ribs, and was kept at the Royal Preston Hospital overnight as a precaution.

Bradley has now gone home to recuperate with his family and there will be no long-term injury problems.

Team Sky’s Dr Richard Freeman said: “Bradley has been discharged from hospital after suffering minor injuries, including bruises to his right hand and ribs, but is expected to make a full and speedy recovery. He is now going to spend the weekend at home convalescing with his family.”
