Wiggins to have surgery on broken collarbone

7:39 am on 10 July 2011

Bradley Wiggins, who crashed out of cycling's Tour de France on Saturday, will undergo surgery on a broken left collarbone and is expected back on his bike within 10 days.

His Team Sky says he's got a clean break on his left collarbone and normally that's about 10 days off the bike.

The Briton, who was a reasonable hope for a podium finish on the Tour this year, will ride either the Vuelta or the Tour of Britain in late August, before going to the world championships in September.
