Spanish great Nieto in quad-bike crash



Spanish motorcycling legend Angel Nieto was hospitalised on Wednesday after a quad-bike crash in Ibiza, the Civil Guard confirmed.

The 13-time world champion was on a quad bike and "had an accident with a tourism vehicle" at a roundabout, said a spokesperson for the Ibiza Civil Guard.

According to local newspaper Diario de Ibiza, he was in a "serious, but not critical state".

Nieto, 70, sits second in the all-time list of most motorcycling world championship titles, two behind Italian Giacomo Agostini.

Only Agostini and current Italy great Valentino Rossi have bettered his tally of 90 Grand Prix victories.
