Mother and son stray onto course during Croydon round of Matrix Fitness Grand Prix, colliding with Dame Sarah Storey as she was taking part in the event

Dame Sarah Storey collided with a woman and a child during the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix in Croydon on Tuesday night. Storey was taking part in the third round of the series in South London, and turned a tight corner at speed only to be confronted by a woman and boy who had appeared to have somehow navigated around the race barriers and were walking on the course.

Multiple Paralympic champion Storey took to Twitter to describe the incident: "Bit battered after exiting the fastest corner on the circuit and being confronted by a woman trying to cross the course with her young son," Storey wrote.
