Earlier today, Xavi Vierge was in the operating theatre at the Hospital Universitario QuirĂ³n Dexeus in Barcelona (Spain) for scheduled surgery to his right hand. Vierge sustained his injuries last Sunday, following a racing incident during race 2 at the Misano World Circuit (Italy).

The fractures to the third metacarpal and hamate bones have now been successfully set without complications by Doctor Mir and his medical team. Already next week, after a follow-up visit, Xavi should be able to start with physiotherapy as part of his recovery plan.
