Norwegian all-rounder Kjetil Jansrud will play no further part in the World Ski Championships after injuring his knee in a crash during the men's super-G on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old was appearing in his fourth world championships and has one World Cup super-G victory to his name and 11 podium finishes, notably in the giant slalom.

The Norwegian was one of the self-proclaimed "Attacking Vikings" team alongside Aksel Lund Svindal, who won a bronze in the super-G.

"Mixed emotions. Happy to get a medal today. Sad my buddy crashed. Looks like @Kjansrud will be missing the next races," Svindal tweeted.
