Olympic and world champion Ruta Meilutyte had surgery on a broken elbow after falling off her bicycle.

The Plymouth-based Lithuanian, 18, suffered the injury on Friday and had the operation on Monday.

“It’s going to be a four-week process before she’s back in the water doing regular-type swimming,” her coach Jon Rudd told BBC Sport.

“It’s not too desperate at all with us being well over 40 weeks away from the Olympic Games.”
