Gresini Racing has announced that Fausto Gresini's funeral will take place in Imola at 10:00am tomorrow (Saturday).

The 125cc world champion and MotoGP team owner passed away in hospital on Tuesday after a brave two-month battle with complications caused by Covid-19.

Due to ongoing pandemic restrictions, the funeral ceremony will be private and therefore 'not be the type of send-off ceremony we all wished for our beloved Fausto'.

As such, the Gresini family and team have agreed to a live broadcast of the funeral 'to allow everybody to take part in this last farewell':

THE LAST GOODBYE TO FAUSTO

'The last goodbye to Fausto Gresini will take place tomorrow at Imola, privately. He passed away last 23 February at 60 years of age.

'Unfortunately, it will not be the type of send-off ceremony we all wished for our beloved Fausto, given the current restrictions caused by the ongoing pandemic.

'As Gresini Racing, and after agreeing with the family, we decided however to stream live the ceremony, to allow everybody to take part in this last farewell.

'You can follow the live streaming at Facebook.com/GresiniRacing this Saturday from 10:00am CET.'
