Five-time Olympic champion Bradley Wiggins has been forced to quit Channel Four’s winter sports show The Jump after sustaining a “small leg fracture” during training.
The Tour de France winner had been training for a snow cross event when the incident happened. He had been keen to continue but has had to withdraw on medical advice.
He revealed the news on Twitter as can be seen below.
The show has a history of causing injuries with Beth Tweddle and Tine Hobley among seven participants in last year’s show who had been forced to quit.
Paralympian Kadeena Cox had her funding cut by UK Sport for the duration of the show due to the dangers of the show.
