Roberto Locatelli
Locatelli will return to Italy for further medical treatment
Italian 250cc rider Roberto Locatelli has been brought out of a medically-induced coma after crashing in practice for Sunday's Spanish GP.

The Gilera rider was taken to hospital with head, face and shoulder injuries after losing control of his bike and crashing into a guardrail.

Locatelli had surgery on Saturday and a scan on Monday showed there was no neurological damage.

He will return to Italy to undergo surgery on his facial injuries.
