After colliding with a spectator, Daniel Oss also has to give up the Tour de France.

His team TotalEnergies has announced that further investigations revealed that the Italian professional suffered a fractured cervical vertebra.

"He's not allowed to move for a few weeks and has to leave the tour," the statement said.

The accident on the third cobblestone sector of stage five had already forced Austrian Michael Gogl to retire due to a broken pelvis and collarbone.

Oss had been riding on the edge of the cobblestones in the sector, hit his head on an unwary fan and fell.

At high speed, Gogl, who was racing up behind him, could no longer avoid it and flew over Oss' wheel.

The Bora-hansgrohe driver Danny van Poppel, who was also involved in the fall, can continue the tour.

It is not yet known how the viewer, who was also injured, is doing.
