Giant wave knocks over skipper

Camper skipper Chris Nicholson is floored by a huge wave on leg eight of the Volvo Ocean Race.

The teams encountered winds of 45 knots and four-metre high waves on the Bay of Biscay as they headed in to Lorient in France on Friday.

France's Groupama completed a heroic comeback victory to forge a significant lead with just one leg and two in-port races remaining, while rivals Telefonica broke three rudders.
