The 24-year-old Olympic omnium champion was trying to avoid riders who had fallen in a crash lower down the banking but as he rode up, he clipped another wheel and went over the top.

Witnesses said that, because of the gradient of the banking, spectators in the front row had been unsighted for the crash.

One man received treatment for cuts to his arm while a young girl also received minor attention, while another member of the crowd has been taken away in a wheelchair covered in blood.

Following the collision, the remainder of this session at the velodrome was abandoned and only one sprint race was to come before a break.

The remainder of the morning session at the velodrome was cancelled and spectators were asked to leave as medical staff attended to Walls.

Walls and Bostock were both treated by medics before being taken to hospital alongside Derek Gee and two spectators for further treatment.

A Team England spokesperson said: ‘Matt is alert and talking (as he has been throughout) and is being given medical attention in hospital.’
