Hayden breaks collarbone in training crash

Nicky Hayden is a major doubt for the eleventh round of the MotoGP season in Portugal next weekend after breaking his right collarbone in a training accident in Italy on Saturday.

The 23-year-old American fell from a Honda CRF450 whilst training in Pavia, near Milan in northern Italy. He is under the care of MotoGP doctor, Dr Claudio Costa, and has had a plate inserted by the specialist in a short operation.

A decision as to whether Hayden will take to the track on Friday morning at the Estoril circuit will be taken after his condition has been assessed by medical staff and the Repsol Honda Team.
