As soon as Mark Cavendish hit the deck in today’s fourth stage of the Tour De France Paddy Power peddled furiously into action for our loyal punters to issue a Justice Refund.
Right at the end of today’s action sprint specialist Cavendish looked to zoom up the inside of World champion Peter Sagan in search of victory.
Sagan was having none of it though and dropped the Dimension Data rider with an elbow Conor McGregor would have been proud of!
You can see the incident for yourself below:

Ouch, we reckon Sagan’s elbow could become as famous as The Rock’s or Marouane Fellaini’s after that one. It really is no wonder the news has come through this evening that he’s be disqualified from the entire tour over the incident.

Not only did the fall prevent Cavendish from winning the stage, but the hard landing may also end up costing him his shot at the overall sprinters Green Jersey as he has gone for an X-ray to asses the damage to his shoulder.
