Video: Giant inflatable arch collapses into road at Tour de France and wipes out Adam Yates

The Tour de France was brought to an abrupt halt when a giant inflatable arch collapsed and caused a huge pile-up at Stage 7.

The riders, including those packed in the peloton, were riding with one kilometre to go when the inflatable – advertising Vittel – fell down. Adam Yates (Orica–BikeExchange) was the first to collide with the arch and could be seen sitting on the road with a deep cut to his chin.
