Speedo ambassador Richie Porte was taken to hospital after suffering a nasty crash during Stage 9 of the Tour de France on the descent of Mont du Chat.

Richie clipped a grass verge during the technical downhill section, crashing onto the road before colliding with a rock-face. Miraculously, Richie remained conscious and was transported to a nearby hospital to receive immediate treatment.

Richie is stable, and recovering in hospital with a fractured right clavicle (collarbone) and pelvis.

From Richie’s tweet this morning, he appears to be in good spirits and we wish him a speedy and full recovery from everyone here at Speedo
