Valentino Rossi discharged from hospital following operation – MotoGP

Seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi has been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation from injury at home.

Rossi had suffered tibia and fibula fractures in his right leg on Thursday in a motocross training accident.

His leg was successfully operated on overnight on Thursday at the Ospedali Riuniti in Ancona. After staying at the hospital for a further day, the Italian was released on Friday morning.

“I spent a good night, I slept, and this morning I felt good. The doctors visited me and they gave me the OK to go home, where I’ll be able to rest even better,” said Rossi.

“I will begin the rehabilitation as soon as possible and we’ll see how my body reacts before making any decisions.

“I will do everything I can to get back as soon as possible.”

Dr Raffaele Pascarella, who operated on the Yamaha rider, said Rossi will require a rest period of “30 to 40 days”, which includes Misano next week and Aragon.

Rossi is currently fourth in the MotoGP standings, 26 points behind Ducati’s championship leader Andrea Dovizioso.
