British Olympic medalist in hospital after fall in France

LONDON (AP) -- A British equestrian rider who won medals at three Olympics is in a French hospital after suffering a head injury in a fall while competing at the weekend.

British Eventing said in a statement Monday that William Fox-Pitt "has undergone more tests and will remain sedated and under observation."

Fox-Pitt fell Saturday during the 2015 FEI World Breeding Eventing Championships for Young Horses in the western French city of Angers. A statement at the time said "William has suffered a head trauma but is otherwise fine ... and stable under sedation."

The 46-year-old Fox-Pitt won team silver at the 2012 and 2004 Olympics, and a team bronze in 2008.
