Tour de France victor Bradley Wiggins has been spotted on his release from hospital giving photographers the finger, after he was injured in a collision with a van.

Wiggins, 32, was thought to have suffered broken ribs and a dislocated finger as he was thrown off his bike near his home in Lancashire last night.

Meanwhile Shane Sutton, head coach for the GB Cycling Team, is recovering in hospital after he was involved in a separate road accident today in Manchester in which he suffered bruising and bleeding on the brain.

A spokeswoman for British Cycling said: "It is extremely rare that our riders and coaches are hurt while out cycling on the road, even rarer that two incidents should occur in a short space of time, and we wish Shane and Bradley a speedy recovery."
