Rossi recovering after surgery

Following surgery to repair his broken right leg yesterday afternoon, Valentino Rossi is recovering well at the Centro Traumatologico Ortopedico in Florence, Italy.

Dr. Roberto Buzzi of the CTO, who performed the operation, gave the following update this morning:

"Valentino is recovering well following yesterday's operation and his morale seems to be high in the circumstances. Tomorrow we will wash and stitch the wound. He has been moved to a more normal room in the hospital and the only requests he has made are for peace and quiet, privacy and a television on which to watch today's race!"

Rossi sustained the injury during a fast high-side crash during Saturday morning practice for his home race. The seven time MotoGP champion looks set to be sidelined for several months.

If you don't care than why are you in here commenting? This isn't another "Rossi going to F1?" story. He has fans, thousands of them, and they might like to know how he is doing THE DAY FOLLOWING HIS SURGERY! I don't think I'm alone when I say that I care less for your comment than an article telling me how an injured rider is fairing.
