The SuperSport rugby pundit sustained multiple injuries just after commencing his eighth race. WARNING: Graphic content.

Former Springbok flyhalf Joel Stransky’s participation in the Cape Epic ended very early.

The SuperSport commentator, who was competing in his eighth race this year, suffered a horrendous fall in Sunday’s prologue stage of 26km.

Stransky was rushed to hospital with a broken rib and punctured lung.

He did, however, tweet a picture of himself later and confirmed he was in a stable condition.
