MotoGP: Dovizioso jokes about accident:

Luckily, the accident involving Andrea Dovizioso on the Terranova Bracciolini cross track this morning ended with just a big scare and a few broken bones. Dovi hit his head violently on the ground. However, even if  the CT scan he had at the Careggi hospital in Florence was negative, he still has fractures to his collarbone and wrists.

But the rider from Forlì kept his spirits up and reassured his fans on his social media channels.

"I really did it this time," he wrote. "My collection of fractures is becoming more consistent, but the important thing is that the CT scan is negative. I'm having more tests done tomorrow and will keep you updated. I’d like to thank to Yuri who is always there with me, to all those who helped me, and to the medical staff at the hospital. I’d also like to thank everyone who has already written to me. I'm reading everything."
