GB cyclist Simon Richardson 'hit by drink-driver'
A van driver accused of knocking over and injuring a Paralympic cyclist was twice over the drink-drive limit and had poor eyesight, a court has heard.
Gold medal winner Simon Richardson, 44, of Porthcawl, was riding along the A48 near Bridgend when he was struck.
At Newport Crown Court, farmer Edward Adams, 60, of Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, denies dangerous driving.
He has admitted drink-driving and failing to stop after an accident. The trial continues.
