Rossi released from hospital

MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has been released from the hospital he was in following the surgery to his right leg.

Yamaha said that at 3:30pm, Rossi left the Centro Traumatologico Ortopedico in Florence, Italy, where he has been recovering since his crash on Saturday at Mugello.

The Italian rider was taken by ambulance to a helicopter and is now being flown to a hospital in Cattolica, close to his home, where he will meet with doctors to discuss the next stage of his recovery.

Rossi is expected to be out of action for several months following his crash.
