The Sale Sharks and former England rugby international Danny Cipriani escaped serious injury when he was hit by a bus in Leeds.

The 25-year-old suffered concussion after running into the path of the bus during a night out with team-mates in fancy dress, reportedly on a 16-venue pub crawl, and he was kept in hospital overnight.

Cipriani's club and international career have been dogged by controversy, mainly through disciplinary problems.
