‘Small fracture’ for Marquez

MotoGP star rookie Marc Marquez has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his shoulder after further medical checks on Saturday morning at Mugello.

Marquez lost control of his Repsol Honda at 320km/h (199mph) and was still travelling at 280km/h (174mph) when he was forced to jump off to avoid hitting a wall.

“Marc has a small fracture in his shoulder and his chin is still heavily swollen. However, he will try to ride [in Saturday morning practice] to understand his ability,” read a Tweet from Repsol Honda.

Marquez is currently second in the championship to team-mate Dani Pedrosa.
