BRAIN DAMAGE Nicky Hayden is in a critical condition in hospital after being hit by a car while out training on his bicycle

The hospital confirmed on Thursday that Hayden suffered "a serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage".

What happened to Nicky Hayden?

He started his MotoGP career with Honda in 2003 immediately after winning the AMA Superbike championship.

Hayden was struck by a auto while training on a bicycle in the Rimini region, requiring medical attention at the scene before being transferred to hospital.

The 35-year-old Owensboro native was training on his bicycle when he was hit by a auto between Tavoleto and Riccione, south of the resort town of Rimini.

CESENA, Italy (AP) - American motorcycle racer Nicky Hayden remains in "extremely critical" condition in hospital two days after he was hit by a auto while training on his bicycle.

His Honda team said that as well as having his fiancée Jackie by his side, Hayden has now been joined by his brother Tommy and mother Rose who arrived in Italy from the United States earlier Thursday.

"Following the incident, Nicky was treated on site by medical staff and then taken by ambulance to a hospital near Rimini for immediate treatment".

Italy's Valentino Rossi, the man Hayden edged to win his world title, led the tributes to him on social media.

"Nicky is one of the best friends I have had in the paddock", said the Italian, who lost the 2006 title to his friend by just five points.

He rode for Repsol Honda, Ducati Corse, Drive M7 Aspar Team, and Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS. "For Nicky, we're all with you", the Italian MotoGP legend added.

The dangers of training on public roads have been highlighted in recent weeks by other accidents affecting professional athletes, according to the Reuters report. The incident occurred in eastern Italy after his cycle collided with a vehicle.
