Marquez has been battling injury since crashing in the season-opening Jerez round of the championship in 2020. The initial injury was repaired with a plate, although an ill-judged return to action the next weekend caused further damage. That damage resulted in pseudarthrosis, a type of infection that prevented the bone from healing as it should.

After multiple procedures on the arm, Marquez finally has a positive prognosis from doctors, with his injury now only just beginning to heal properly.

The statement reads:

'A further review of Marc Marquez at the Hospital Ruber Internacional, 10 weeks after surgery for an infected pseudoarthrosis of the right humerus, has confirmed a favourable clinical situation.

'The medical team led by Doctors Samuel Antuña and Ignacio Roger de Oña, and including Doctors Juan De Miguel, Aitor Ibarzabal and Andrea García Villanueva, assessed the radiographic signs of bone consolidation and were satisfied with the progress.

'From now on, and during the next few weeks, Marquez will be able to progress steadily in the process of functional recovery of the operated arm.'

It is still not totally clear as to whether Marquez will start the MotoGP season in 2021. The season-opening rounds and pre-season tests are scheduled to take place at Qatar in March. Marquez and his medical team are unlikely to want the Spanish star to again return to action too
