Cav hit by glandular fever

More time out for Manx Missile

Isle of Man cyclist Mark Cavendish will be out of action for longer than expected, after being diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus.

A recent blood sample found he has glandular fever - meaning the Manx Missile needs more rest.

The 30-time Tour de France stage winner has not raced for the team since Milan-San Remo on 18th March.

Team Dimension Data won't put a timescale on his return - but hope his symptoms will improve over the next two weeks.
