The 36-year-old said on Twitter that he suffered a small leg fracture while taking part in the show’s snow cross training.


The eight-time Olympic medallist and Tour de France winner joins a long list of contestants to have suffered painful injuries while participating in the Channel 4 show.

Former Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle required neck surgery after a crash last February, while former Holby City star Tina Hobley is still recovering from leg and arm injuries sustained on last year’s series.
