Unlucky photographer gets VERY close to the action at Cheltenham

The snapper has been taken to the race course medical centre.

ONE PHOTOGRAPHER GOT much closer to the action than he would have wanted on day two of the Cheltenham Festival and can count himself very to escape unharmed.

Coming to the end of the Cross Country Chase, both Toutancarmont and Quantitiveeasing crashed through a barrier and came into contact with the unlucky snapper.

And from another angle

The photographer has been named as Patrick McCann of the Racing Post with editor Bruce Millington tweeting that he’d suffered a broken leg.
