MotoGP Doctors diagnose Stoner mystery illness

Stoner's on the mend from mild anaemia and gastritis say doctors

FORMER MOTOGP World Champion Casey Stoner has been diagnosed with 'mild anaemia', following the bout of poor health that's plagued the Australian's recent performance.

Doctors have confirmed Stoner has been suffering from the blood disorder and a form of gastritis, or bad guts, to you and me.

Despite the illness Stoner will race at this weekend's German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring.

“I have been in USA until Saturday to do all the tests. First of all I'd like to thanks all the Doctors involved in this, Dr. Ting and Dr. Tuan in the Fremont Surgery Center, Dr. Macchiagodena, Dr. Catani, Dr. Ceccarelli and of course my physiotherapist Freddy. Hopefully step by step I will feel better with their indications.

“I still don't feel like I am 100% but the biggest problem now is the ribs that are very painful after the crash in the USA GP Qualifying. It will be probably another hard week end, but as always, we will do our best to stay as much as possible close to the lead of the Championship.”
