    US President George W. Bush, out for a spin on his bicycle at the Group of Eight summit venue, crashed into a policeman and had to be treated for scratches on his hands and arms.

    Mr Bush was going at a pretty high speed on the presidential bicycle when he collided with an officer guarding the Gleneagles golf resort, said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.
    The US leader, who had been riding for about an hour, skidded on the paved surface and suffered scrapes to his hands and arms.

    He was treated and bandaged by the White House physician.

    The President was mostly concerned about the police officer, who was taken to a local hospital as a precaution with a possible ankle injury, Mr McClellan said.

    Sad, innit?
