The TrackWorldCup.co.uk team caught up with Azizulhasni Awang's management at the Royal Infirmary Hospital in Manchester to get this exclusive update on his splinter injury.
We can report that surgery was completed today and the splinter successfully removed, the doctor present suggested he could fly back as early as tomorrow and can ride again in just under a fortnight.
This report is not for the squeamish.
