There'll be no medals for Britain in the Olympic road race as Geraint Thomas crashed out of the competition frustratingly close to the end.
He looked to be in with a good chance of a medal when he was among a chase group at Copacabana - but then he tumbled to the ground after apparently sliding on concrete drainage on the left side of the road.
And the worst thing about it all? It was SO close to the finish, with just 10 km left to go of the 237.5 km race.

But like a true champ, he picked himself back up again and managed to finish 11th. Fortunately he didn't need any hospital treatment either.
Thanks for all the messages guys. Gutted to end like that, with it all the play for!!!

It was a bit disappointing for all Team GBers really, with Chris Froome finishing 12th, Ireland's Dan Martin 13th and Adam Yates 15th - but you'd never be able to tell that from all the support on social media.
The whole GB cycling team are doing so well though. ?? #RioOlympics2016

Bad luck in the road race but a top effort from team GB

Such an unlucky road race for Team GB - no end medal but a great performance :/

Thomas was far from the only one to crash out of the race though - at one point, Italy's Vincenzo Nibali, Colombia's Sergio Henao and Poland's Rafal Majka were the top three but then Nibali dramatically hit the deck on the decent and took Henao with him.
I just feel so sorry for Nibali and Henao that was terrible
Going to be a tough night for Nibali and Henao. Imagine going from an assured Olympic medal to sliding across the tarmac. Brutal. #Rio2016

Nibali and Henao must be heartbroken

But Majka just couldn't hold on to that lead in the final two kilometres and so had to make do with bronze as Belgian's Greg van Avermaet sprinted past to take the gold and Denmark's Jakob Fuglsang took silver.
Gripping stuff to the end.
