Sean Kelly has a formidable reputation as an exceptional descender, but even he seems to have been unable to avoid an accident when a wild boar ran across his path on a descent in Spain.
>>> What was Sean Kelly's toughest ever day? (video)
Kelly was descending the Coll des Rates in eastern Spain with An Post-Chain Reaction directeur sportif Kurt Bogaerts when, from the looks of the photos at least, a wild boar ran out of the undergrowth and into the path of the four-time Tour de France green jersey winner.
Thankfully the Irishman escaped unharmed "walking away without a scratch" with his bike also coming off unscathed.
However the boar, which is likely to have weighed around 100kg, doesn't seem to have been so lucky.

Perhaps Kelly could have done with remaining as cool and collected as Warren Barguil at the 2015 Tour de France, when the Frenchman calmly negotiated a heard of cows crossing the road during the high speed descent off the Col du Tourmalet.
