Wiggins collided with a van pulling out of a garage forecourt in Wrightington, Lancashire, on Wednesday evening (November 7).

The Tour de France winner and Olympic gold medallist suffered a bruised hand and ribs as a result of the accident and spent the night at the Royal Preston Hospital. He returned to his home in Eccleston the following day.

"Although I'm still a little bit sore I will now be spending time at home with my family and concentrating on making a full recovery," said Wiggins in a statement.

"I'm looking forward to getting back on the bike soon and continuing my preparations for the 2013 season."

The Team Sky cyclist also took the opportunity to thank staff at the hospital for "[looking after him] so well".

Yesterday (November 8), Team GB cycling coach Shane Sutton was also injured in a separate bike crash on the A6 Stockport Road. Greater Manchester Police said that Sutton was taken to Hope Hospital for treatment after sustaining head injuries.

"It is now believed he may have suffered a small bleed on the brain and concussion," they explained. "He is now in a stable condition."

The drivers in both accidents were uninjured and police have yet to comment on whether the 61-year-old man involved in the crash with Sutton has been questioned.
