Following Valentino Rossi's Twitter post, Colin Edwards - the other rider involved, and injured, during Marco Simoncelli's fatal MotoGP accident at Sepang on Sunday - has used his Facebook page to pass on the following message:

"Thanks to everyone for ur support at this time :( Very sad to see a friend pass in any case. I'm holding up ok mentally, it was a very tragic accident :( Physically, besides a dislocated shoulder & ligaments involved, think both wrists & left heel have fractures too, getting X-rays on Wednesday. I feel sad for the whole MotoGP community right now, my heart is heavy for everyone affected, from family to fans. God speed my friend, u will be missed.

"CE"
