Marc Marquez has undergone an operation this morning to treat a fracture to the fifth metacarpal of his left hand.

The reigning MotoGP World Champion fractured his hand yesterday while training on his mountain bike on the outskirts of Cervera, Spain.

Dr. Xavier Mir of the Universitario Dexeus Hospital carried out the operation, declared it a success, commenting; “The surgery consisted of a reduction and internal fixation of the bone, through screws for compression and a neutralising titanium plate with six holes. Marc will remain in hospital for 24 hours, and in 48 hours will begin functional rehabilitation.”

As long as recovery goes as expected then Marquez should be fine to race at the Japanese MotoGP round at Motegi, which takes place in ten days time.
