Rossi's leg wound closed

Following Saturday's surgery, when a metal pin was inserted into Valentino Rossi's right tibia fracture, the MotoGP world champion underwent a small follow-up procedure to close the wound on Monday.

"Today Valentino underwent another small operation to close the wound, which is looking good,” said Dr. Roberto Buzzi, head of Trauma at the CTO Careggi [Centro Traumatologico Ortopedico] in Florence, Italy.

"We closed it with 15 stitches and our overall medical judgement is positive. We used a short general anaesthetic and when he woke up he was in good shape.

"The healing process of the injury is going well and as expected in Valentino's condition."

Rossi crashed on Saturday in practice for his home Italian Grand Prix at Mugello and is predicted to be out of action until at least August.
