Nicky Hayden's medical condition was called "extremely critical" by the hospital in Italy where he was taken after he was hit by a vehicle while bicycle training Wednesday.

If you're following the news, you might have heard that Team Red Bull Honda racer Nicky Hayden suffered a nasty accident this week in Italy. "The prognosis remains reserved".

"[Nicky] remains in an extremely serious condition in the Intensive Care unit in hospital", a statement from MotoGP said.

Hayden's fiancé Jackie, brother Tommy and mother Rose are by his side. Paramedics stabilized him on site, and then he was taken to the nearest hospital with the highest gravity code.

"The situation is stable", said the brief statement issued by the hospital on Friday morning.

Rossi, a team-mate of Hayden's when they rode for both Repsol Honda and later Ducati, added: "The most handsome thing I have about him is when he gave his hand to me after the unlucky race of Valencia 2015, on the lap of honour". For him it was his farewell to MotoGP, I had just lost the world [title]. Stay close as we will keep you updated on his condition as soon as new details emerge.
