Andrea Dovizioso has shared a message about the accident that he suffered.

Ex-MotoGP rider Dovizioso was airlifted to hospital after a motocross crash on Tuesday.

He posted to social media from his hospital bed: “This time I really took a good hit!

“My collection of fractures is getting increasingly substantial, but the important thing is that the CT scan is negative.

“[Wednesday] I will undergo further tests and will let you all know how they go.

“A big thanks to [trainer] Yuri Naldini who is always by my side, to everyone who helped me, and to the medical staff at the hospital.

“Thanks also to everyone who has messaged me. I will keep reading all your messages.

“Who can guess what I broke?!”

Dovizioso broke his collarbone and has damage to his wrist, report.

But the negative CT scan is a huge relief, after initial scares about the potential of a head injury.

Dovizioso, now 38 years old, crashed at a private track in Arezzo and was flown to hospital in Florence.

He was officially made a MotoGP Legend last year.

The 15-time grand prix winner was runner-up three seasons in a row, from 2017-19.

Only a prime Marc Marquez denied him a championship.

Marquez and Valentino Rossi were among the names to wish Dovi a speedy recovery.
