8:26 am on 20 November 2012

TheBritish cycling star Mark Cavendish says he's "relatively ok" after colliding with a car while training in Italy.

Cavendish, the 2011 world road race champion, who has at home in Tuscany, told his Twitter followers yesterday that

apart from a bruised arm, he's ok.

Cavendish's accident happened less than two weeks after Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins and British Cycling head coach Shane Sutton were knocked off their bikes in Britain.

The 27-year-old Cavendish, who last month left Team Sky for Belgian outfit Omega Pharma-Quickstep, has now travelled from Tuscany to California.
