"I am currently feeling pains in my chest and all over my body. The driver didn't even stop," he told the Daily Graphic.

He further revealed that the driver who knocked him down hasn’t been apprehended, as his vehicle number could not be recorded.

Mr. Sahnoon said he has, however, reported the incident to the Police and called for better protection during cycling events.

"Every place was blocked but I don't understand how he managed to break into the barrier and caused this havoc,” he added.
