James Cracknell talks about life after his cycling accident

Double Olympic gold medalist, James Cracknell has told the BBC how an accident which left him with a brain injury changed his life and left his relationships under severe strain. 

In July 2010, Cracknell was hit by a petrol tanker whist attempting to cycle, row, run and swim from Los Angeles to New York inside 16 days. 

Since the accident, the Olympian has struggled to build relationships with his son and put his marriage under strain due to his erratic and aggressive behaviour.
