He was taken on a stretcher and into an ambulance

Marquez will have surgery to repair a fractured right humerus in Barcelona next Tuesday.

The Spaniard had also slid off the track earlier in the race while leading the field but recovered to rejoin the field at 14th.

He fought all the way back to third before being forced to retire after the second crash.

Due to the 2020 season’s condensed schedule, it remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will return to defend his 2019 championship title.

Fabio Quartararo, 21, won the season-opening Spanish MotoGP having started on pole.

However, it was not all smooth sailing for the Frenchman as he was overtaken by Marquez early on.

He regained the lead after Marquez’s first crash and eased to victory – finishing more than four seconds ahead of Spain’s Maverick Vinales in second.

Britain’s Cal Crutchlow missed the race after crashing in the warm-up.
