Phil Read still in hospital in Imola with pneumonia

UPDATED The British champion was admitted to the hospital in Imola two weeks ago for a chest infection and respiratory problems


On Monday, Phil Read will leave the hospital in Imola where he had been hospitalized for two weeks following an illness. The British champion had been struck by a chest infection and respiratory problems while he was in Italy for the 200 Miglia di Imola.

His son, Junior, announced the news  on his father's condition through social networks: "He is no longer on oxygen, and the doctors have given him permission to fly on Monday. After almost two weeks in a hospital bed he needs to start moving his legs a bit, and Roki Read is here to bully dad and make him move around some,“ he said jokingly.

This is breaking new from Graham Read: Unfortunately the situation has changed slightly, Dad is making good progress but still has Pneumonia and breathing difficulties, we have no discharge date yet and won’t be Monday.
