Olympic champion Dario Cologna will miss the start of the cross-country skiing season after injuring his right ankle during a training session.

The 27-year-old Swiss, who won Olympic gold in the 15-kilometre freestyle, will have surgery on Friday and is expected to be out of action for up to two months whilst he recovers.

The three time overall World Cup champion is now in a race against the clock to fit in time for the Winter Olympics in Sochi that starts in February.
