The collision between the bicycle and a 172 bus took place on the westbound carriageway near the Lidl store.

Police were called to the scene just after 9am and the road was partially closed for about three hours.

"A man in his late forties was taken to a central London hospital, where his condition is currently serious but stable," said a Southwark Police spokesman.

No-one has been arrested in connection with the collision.

Detectives from the serious collision investigation unit based at Catford are investigating.
