Marc Marquez has an infection in his fractured arm after third surgery as he regrets his attempt to return after a Jerez MotoGP crash.

The crash occurred in the 2020 MotoGP season-opening race, as Marquez experienced a high-side on the exit of turn three at the Circuito de Jerez. After tumbling across the gravel, the six-time champion came to a rest in the trap, clutching his arm.

It was later deemed that he had fractured his humerus. Marquez was operated on following the diagnosis, and the following month he underwent another surgery. Recently it was announced that he had experienced another surgery, and after this it has been disclosed by the team that the Spaniard was found to have had an infection in his fracture.
