Oxford rower Felix Drinkall has been taken to hospital for check-ups after appearing to collapse as Cambridge earned victory in the men’s Boat Race. 

The Oxford crew rowed their boat to the bank following the completion of the race to ensure Drinkall could be treated by medical staff.

The BBC reported Drinkall was conscious and had been taken to hospital in an ambulance to undergo check ups.

Oxford University Boat Club President Tassilo von Mueller said the team had been concerned for Drinkall following the race.

‘I don’t know how Felix is, he wasn’t great in the boat,’ Von Mueller said.

‘I hope he is alright.’
