Marc Marquez has broken his leg

MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has broken his leg during a training accident in Barcelona. The recently turned twenty-one year old was participating in a dirt-track training session when he fell.

The MotoGP sensation was immediately taken to hospital where it was confirmed he had fractured his right fibula.  Fortunately, there was no ligament damage or dislocation meaning there wouldn't be need for surgery.

A Repsol Honda statement says Marquez has already started rehabilitation with magnetic therapy with the expected recovery period to be 3-4 weeks. The statement suggests he’ll be fully fit for the first round in Qatar.

He will however miss next week’s second pre-season test in Sepang.

“It was a really unfortunate accident that could happen to anyone at any time” said Marquez.

I was rushed to hospital and Dr. Mir treated me, thankfully there was no ligament damage and it seems like a clean break”
