American pairs figure skater Ashley Cain suffered a scary fall at the Golden Spin of Zagreb in Croatia on Friday after her partner Timothy LeDuc appeared to lose his grip on her at the end of an overhead lift during their long programme.

The back of Cain's head hit the ice before LeDuc fell on top of her. The 23-year-old initially appeared unconscious when LeDuc lifted her head off the ice, but she got up and they completed their programme.

Cain said on Twitter that she had been released from hospital and would continue her recovery back home.

"Thank you for all of your love and for supporting us! The medical team and staff were wonderful," she said.

Cain, who has been skating with LeDuc since May 2016, is the 2018 Four Continents silver medallist and 2017 US national bronze medallist.
