Equestrianism: Kauto Star trainer, Laura Collett, still sedated

Laura Collett remains under sedation in hospital after suffering a serious fall in the British Eventing Horse Trials at Tweseldown on Monday.

The 23-year-old, known for training the dual Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Kauto Star in dressage after his retirement from racing, was reported to have had a comfortable night and was woken up briefly and responded well to family.

The latest statement on her website said: "As a result of the damage to Laura's lungs, it has been decided to give her longer under sedation and it is anticipated waking her [today]."
