The driver of the car failed to stop and fled the scene, leaving the cyclist in a seriously injured state on the road.

Officers from the Guardia Civil launched a search and spent all day on Sunday trying to locate the driver and the vehicle.

The driver will be brought before the courts on Monday morning.
