The Frenchwoman, 24, stayed on the side of the piste for 20 minutes, apparently suffering from her right knee, before being carried away from the course on a stretcher.

A French team spokesman said Worley, winner of a giant slalom in St Moritz at the weekend, was headed to a hospital in Lyon for checks on the extent of the injury.
