Marc Marquez diagnosed with a new episode of diplopia

The eight-time World Champion experiences another episode of diplopia upon his arrival back in Spain

On Sunday the 20th of March, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) was declared unfit for the Indonesian Grand Prix, held at the Pertamina Mandalika Circuit, after suffering a nasty highside at Turn 7 during Warm Up prior to the race.

The MotoGP™ medical team confirmed that Marquez suffered a concussion and several minor traumas before being transferred to the hospital in Mataram, the capital of the island of Lombok, where he underwent a more exhaustive medical examination and a CT scan in which major injuries were ruled out. As a precaution, the MotoGP™ medical team together with the Repsol Honda Team jointly decided that Marc Marquez would not take part in the Indonesian race.


During the journey back to Spain, Marc Marquez began to experience discomfort with his vision and upon his arrival in Barcelona on Monday, he had an emergency visit to the Hospital Clinic de Barcelona with his trusted ophthalmologist, Dr. Sanchez Dalmau, who after an examination confirmed a relapse in the diplopia that the rider suffered last November.

This morning, the Spaniard visited his medical team, led by Dr. Samuel Antuña, at the Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid, where Marquez underwent a general medical check-up to evaluate all the bruises caused by the crash and a brain MRI. This has reconfirmed that he did not suffer any other injuries.
