The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Moment Team GB and Denmark crash in men’s cycling team pursuit | Tokyo 2020” – below is their description.
Denmark and Team GB collided on the track of the Olympic velodrome during the men’s cycling team pursuit on Tuesday.
The front rider in the Danish team, Frederik Madsen, hit Team GB’s Charlie Tanfield in the high speed race, sending both men flying off their bikes onto the floor.
The Danish team then controversially advanced to the men’s team pursuit final.
The collision came just hours after British Cycling’s performance director Stephen Park said Denmark should have been disqualified for using illegal shin tape in their qualifying round.
