MotoGP champion Marc Marquez undergoes nasal surgery

Marc Marquez

MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has undergone successful surgery to improve breathing through his nose.

The Honda rider had surgery to correct his nasal bridge, as a deviated septum was producing a respiratory obstruction preventing him from breathing properly.

Marquez will now have to rest and be inactive for one week.

The Spaniard clinched the MotoGP title in his first season in the category, becoming the first man to do so in 35 years.

Marquez picked up his world champion's trophy at the FIM Gala in Monte Carlo on Sunday night.
