Andre Villas-Boas had to withdraw from the Dakar Rally on Wednesday morning after being taken to hospital. Instead, he was pretty adamant that eventually he would drop football altogether to become a rally vehicle racer.

Having parted ways with Chinese football club Shanghai SIPG in November, the 40-year old underwent intense training for the rally, which consists of 14 stages and covers nearly 9,000km through South America. He said that the crash had forced him to pull out of the race.

Villas-Boas was in 43rd position at the time of his departure, while Loeb, 43, has been doing battle with his Peugeot team-mate Stephane Peterhansel.

In the vehicle race, the 40-year-old Villas-Boas was in 43rd position for Toyota.

However, the matches taking place in China will not be broadcast through Twitch. Now it is also part of the base game and has a dedicated tab in the game menu.

Villas-Boas was hospitalised on Tuesday due to back pain sustained in an accident when the Overdrive Toyota driver hit a dune during the San Juan de Marcona stage in Peru, according to reports.

The Portuguese told BBC Sport his spine and back hurt, "but nothing broken, which was the main worry". "The Dakar unfortunately is finished for us." he wrote.

I'm a little disappointed that Andre didn't get a little further in the competition, honestly. We jumped off a dune and crashed the vehicle nose first.
