The former Chelsea and Tottenham coach jolted his back after his car went airborne off a sand dune and made a hard landing, Toyota said in a statement.

“Medical examinations show no broken bones,” but Villas-Boas is in pain and he and his co-pilot Ruben Faria are out of the 9,000km rally, the team added.
