Former MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden has been taken to hospital after being struck by a car while training on his bicycle along Italy’s Adriatic coast.

The World Superbike series said the 35-year-old American, who rides for the Red Bull Honda team, was hit while training near the east coast resort of Rimini following a race at Imola.

He last raced in the championship in Spain in September 2016 as a stand-in for injured Australian Jack Miller at the privately-run Marc VDS Honda team. Hayden started 216 races between 2003 and 2015, winning three.
