The station was evacuated while the man was treated.  London Ambulance said he was later taken to St George’s Hospital, in Tooting and he is not thought to be seriously injured.

“At this stage it is unclear exactly how the man came to fall on to the tracks and officers are working to determine the full circumstances,” a spokesman said.

South West Trains said services between Twickenham and London Waterloo were suspended while the man was treated but later resumed.

The incident occurred as thousands of fans left Twickenham Stadium after England’s victory over Fiji in the first World Cup game.
