Final free practice for the French MotoGP at Le Mans has been halted after five minutes due to an accident for Cal Crutchlow.

The Englishman was kicked into a highside when the rear of his Monster Yamaha Tech 3 lost traction on the exit of a right-hander.

Crutchlow was left lying on the side of the circuit after sliding to a halt, causing the session to be stopped.

Fortunately, Crutchlow was eventually able to walk away and made his way back to the pits on the back of a scooter. He then grabbed a bicycle to head for the necessary medical checks!

The session will restart at 13:43 local time, when Crutchlow - who landed on his right arm - will try to make a return. Le Mans is the home event for the Tech 3 team.

The delay means that Qualifying 1 will now start at 14:20.
