Cape Town - The end of the fourth stage at this year's Tour de France was marred by a horrific crash which brought down Team Dimension Data's sprint king, Mark Cavendish

Cavendish, who was fighting for a stage win in a sprint finish, seemed to be pushed into the barriers by world champion, Peter Sagan, the winner of the third stage on Monday. 

He went down in a heap with two further riders riding over the top of him.

Cavendish completed the stage but was taken to hospital.

Early reports suggest that he has a fracture and that his tour is over. Sagan was seen to approach the Dimension Data team bus, possibly to offer an apology. 

The stage was won by France's Arnaud Demare.
