Tottenham keeper Carlo Cudicini has fractured his wrists and injured his pelvis after he was involved in a serious road accident on Thursday. The 36-year-old Italian stopper was admitted to hospital and underwent scans under the supervision of the club's medical staff.
Cudicini's BMW superbike collided with a Ford Fiesta on Forest Road, Walthamstow at 10.30am.
A police spokesperson confirmed: "A 36-year-old male suffered injuries described as possibly life-changing and was taken to an East London hospital for further assessment and treatment."
A spokesperson for Spurs, who later confirmed the goalkeeper had fractured his wrists and injured his pelvis, said: "We can confirm Carlo Cudicini was involved in a road accident this morning. The club doctor is with him at hospital where we await the result of scans and tests."
The female driver and a child passenger walked away from the car - which was described as a 'write-off' - and did not need hospital treatment.
