The Alness cyclist has been ruled out of tonight's Men 15km final after his injury was confirmed.

Team Scotland have also said they are waiting to find out if he will be fit to compete in the Points Race as well as the Time Trial and Road Race next week.

The 34-year-old was caught up in a horror crash during the men's 15km on Sunday morning which took out half of the field.

Two cyclists were taken to hospital with fans also injured when a rider and his bike catapulted into the crowd.

Gordon was initially thought to be ok before his shoulder injury was confirmed.

Scottish Cycling says an update regarding Gordon's further participation at the Games will be released in due course.

Regarding Gordon's injury, Team Scotland released a statement saying: "Unfortunately due to a shoulder injury sustained in the crash during this morning's qualifying session, Kyle Gordon will not start in this evening's Scratch Race Final.

"A further update on whether he will participate in the Points Race, as well as the Time Trial and Road Race in the West Midlands will follow in due course."
