Marc Marquez can start his rehabilitation six weeks after the operation
1:57 p.m.: Motorcyclist Marc Marquez has been cleared to start physiotherapy six weeks after surgery on his left arm in the United States. “We have taken an important step in the recovery process,” said the Spaniard, six-time MotoGP world champion, during the race for his Repsol Honda team.
Marquez, 29, broke his right arm during the 2020 Spanish GP. He then missed the entire season, having to undergo three more surgeries. The most recent operation is his fourth. “During this second examination, the doctors confirmed that the arm bone was fixed correctly. With this, we can start with physiotherapy in the right arm. I am delighted to be able to restore mobility to my arm and thank all the medical team for care and attention.
Marquez wants to return to MotoGP in 2023. The Spaniard will stay in the United States for now to continue working on his recovery.
