Honda has revealed Marc Marquez has entered the next phase in his recovery from arm surgery and will begin physiotherapy as he looks to get back on track before the conclusion of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship season.

The six-time MotoGP World Champion was forced to pause his participation this season following the Italian MotoGP at Mugello after announcing he will undergo a fourth surgery on his arm, the ongoing legacy of the injury he sustained in the 2020 MotoGP opener at Jerez.

That incident scuppered his entire 2020 campaign, but despite a successful return to action in 2021 - scoring three wins - it has continued to hamper him into 2022.

With the lack of strength putting conciliatory pressure on his shoulder to compensate, Marquez took the decision to undergo a fourth surgery in an effort to save his career.

Showing on social media that he can now discard the sling he has been wearing for six weeks, Marquez will now begin a course of intense physiotherapy and cardio training.

While there is no word on when Marquez will return, he is hoping to be back on the Repsol Honda before the end of the year.

We have taken an important step in the recovery process. In this second check-up, the doctors have confirmed that the humerus is consolidating correctly, with this we can start physiotherapy on the right arm and cardio training.

"I am very excited to be able to recover mobility in my arm to continue advancing the recovery process and I want to thank the entire medical team for their treatment and attention.”
