Two days later, the operation went well, a titanium plate was placed with 12 screws between them to connect the arm bones.
Interestingly, two days after the operation, Marc Marquez was deemed fit and fit enough to appear at the Andalusian Grand Prix. He even appeared in the Free Practice session.
Unfortunately, after FP3 Marc Marquez actually found bruises on his arm and finally he canceled his participation in the Andalusian GP. The hope was that the rider could perform in Czech, but the drama of his injury was getting worse.
Surprisingly ahead of the Czech GP, Marc Marquez is certain to have a second operation. This operation was carried out after the plate on his arm broke when he tried to open the window of his house.
Since the incident, the recovery process has been very complicated and takes a long time.
