CHORLEY, England (AP) — Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins was released from hospital with broken ribs a day after a collision with a car while cycling.

Wiggins was injured Wednesday near a gas station in Lancashire, Northern England. Along with the broken ribs, he had cuts and bruises.

Team Sky said "the injuries he sustained are not thought to be serious and he is expected to make a full and speedy recovery."

Wiggins gave Britain its first Tour de France title and won a gold medal in the London Olympics time trial. He is widely expected to be knighted by the end of the year.
