Aleix Espargaró has successful surgery

Aleix Espargaró has successful surgery

The Pramac Ducati rider is expected to return to training in the coming weeks after a problem with his left forearm.

Aleix Espargaró has had a successful operation to correct the compartment syndrome he was suffering in his left forearm.

The Spaniard, who is also the youngest ever debutant in the MotoGP class, went under the knife four months after having the same operation on his right forearm.

The operation, performed by Doctor Ángel Villamor, was completed under local anaesthetic and should relieve the pain and exhaustion Espargaró was suffering in his arm.

Espargaró is expected to begin his rehabilitation immediately and resume training within the next few weeks.
