Hannah Mayho has undergone a successful surgical procedure to pin her broken leg after being hit by a car during a training ride in Belgium on Friday morning.
Mayho, 19, and four other Team GB women were involved in the collision - Lucy Martin, Katie Colclough, Emma Trott and Sarah Reynolds. All are now recovering from their injuries, according to British Cycling.
Mayho (pictured) is being treated at a hospital in Oudenaarde after breaking her leg, arm and wrist. She has now been joined by her parents and is likely to spend a further week in hospital.
Colclough, who suffered from concussion, is also still under observation in hospital but is due to be released imminently. Martin, Trott and Reynolds have all now been discharged.
Great Britain team manager Simon Cope said "We are all feeling much more positive today. All the people here have been really great and have rallied around to help us."

His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success.

He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
