The mother of a Welsh Olympic medal-winning cyclist has been knocked over while cycling, breaking her pelvis.

Olympian Becky James, 25, pleaded with people to "think bike" after her mother Christine James was hit.

The 55-year-old, from Abergavenny, tweeted a picture of herself wearing a neck brace after the incident in Monmouthshire on Thursday afternoon.

    I have a student with the same name Ffion James... I was disappointed to find out she isn't "the real thing".

    It's obviously sad when someone gets knocked off their bike, but is it thread-worthy? In other words, is there anything worth discussing? Shxt happens...

    this. its like that time when someone posted that that lady off breakfast tv was "hot" because "she rode a bike" and she wasn't and so what?

    I'd say something being threadworthy on a cycling forum should be a pretty low bar. Hopefully all recover well in both incidents.

    I'm sure Ffion feels exactly the same way about you...
