UAE-Team Emirates rider Manuele Mori has fractured his shoulder in a crash during the ninth stage of the Tour de France.

The Italian went down early on the day, along with LottoNL-Jumbo's Robert Gesink who also had to abandon the race.

The extent of Mori's injuries were evident right away as the rider couldn't stand up and was shouting on the ground. "In the crash, Mori suffered a dislocated right shoulder which was immediately treated by the race's medical service," said Doctor Antonio Angelucci, the team's physician.

"He was transported to Oyonnax hospital, where X-rays found a fracture of the right shoulder blade with pneumothorax and a little pneumomediastinum. He'll spend the night at the hospital," added the doctor.

This was the 36-year-old's second Tour de France participation. The Italian finished 76th in the 2013 edition.
