The rider was found unconscious by race doctors.

However, Goolaerts's team - Veranda's Willems-Crelan - revealed on Sunday night that he had suffered a cardiac arrest and had passed away at 10.40pm at Lille hospital.

Also in recent years, Iranian Paralympian Bahman Golbarnezhad also died of cardiac arrest on the way to hospital after crashing during the S4 race at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The 23-year-old had been airlifted to hospital in Lille after receiving CPR at the roadside following a crash during the 257-kilometre race.

The team added that the cyclist died "in the presence of his family members and loved ones, who we keep in our thoughts".

Alberto Contador, twice victor of the Tour de France, wrote on Twitter: "My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Michael Goolaerts, since the end of the race I have not stopped thinking about him". Swiss national road champion Silvan Dillier (Ag2r-La Mondiale), who was part of the day-long breakaway, was the only rider able to stay with Sagan as the kilometers ticked down.

Iniesta admits he may have played his final Champions League game
Real Madrid were the first when they defeated Barca 3-1 in the Spanish Super Cup back in August. Busquets was even more scathing than Iniesta in his criticism of the performance.

Once the man who won the last three editions of the road cycling world championships jumped away from the group of main favourites with 55km left, he never looked back. He rode several of the cobbled classics and semiclassics this season.

It's just one of those races that takes a lot from you, not just physically but mentally too.

Paris: Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) silenced the critics with a near-faultless and all-conquering performance to win Paris-Roubaix.

Paris-Roubaix is one of the five Monument classics along with Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Tour of Lombardy.

Unfortunately, 22-year-old Belgian cyclist Michael Goolaerts fell victim to these incredibly hard circumstances during this afternoon's race.
