Cyclist Diego Moreno Covered In Thousands Of Painful Spikes After Crashing Into Cactus

If the photos are anything to go by, this looks like it hurt.

Cyclist Diego Moreno was rushed to hospital after a crash into a cactus bush left him with thousands upon thousands of nasty spikes wedged in his body.

It's understood the Argentinian hit a pothole in the road while out on a ride with friends in Buenos Aires.

The bump then threw Moreno over his handlebars and off his bike into a bush by the side of the road.

But this wasn't just your standard bush, unfortunately for poor old Moreno it was a cactus.

Passers-by helped by dislodging a couple of the big ones, but he was eventually taken to hospital to be treated for his wounds.

"We were going with three more cyclists, I was last in line," Moreno told The Sun.

"I didn't see a small crater in the asphalt and I hit the pothole.

"Thank god I was wearing glasses and a helmet and I didn't injure my face or head.

"Because the way the spines got embedded in me, it could have blinded me."
