Rossi Gets Stitched-Up

Valentino Rossi’s on the mend, and no-longer has a gaping hole in his leg after the docs decided that chucking a few stitches in the hole would be a good idea.

Dr. Roberto Buzzi, head of Trauma at the CTO Careggi (Centro Traumatologico Ortopedico) in Florence, Italy, made the following statement about Valentino Rossi today:

“Today Valentino underwent another small operation to close the wound, which is looking good. We closed it with 15 stitches and our overall medical judgement is positive. We used a short general anaesthetic and when he woke up he was in good shape. The healing process of the injury is going well and as expected in Valentino’s condition.”
