Rossi injury update
Yamaha have released positive news on the recovery of Valentino Rossi following his motocross crash, and say he hopes to get out of hospital today:
Having been diagnosed yesterday evening with mild thoracic and abdominal trauma, following a motocross accident, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team rider Valentino Rossi is making positive progress with his recovery.
Last night the 38-year-old Italian spent a quiet night at the “Ospedale Infermi” in Rimini and was visited this morning by the doctors. Valentino told that he is experiencing less pain both in the chest and in the abdomen, compared to last night. The pain is the result of slight liver and kidney lesions that have not evolved into further complications.
Valentino will continue to receive pain relief over the next 12 hours and, over the course of the day, he will undergo routine diagnostic tests. If the results are positive, he may be discharged from the hospital within the day.
