It’s said that Pastran was travelling at incredible speeds of 55mph when he approached the final corner in the Rio de Janeiro event.

But things took a tragic turn when Pastran, a Brazilian native, crashed into a motorbike travelling in the opposite direction at around 37mph.

Shocking footage shows the aftermath of the incident, with Pastran lying completely still in the road while other skaters involved in the crash cry with pain.

Daniel Engel, Yan Bertinati and Joao Pedro were caught up the crash and immediately rushed to hospital with serious injuries, but are said to not be at risk of dying.
