"He is still in intensive care and suffered a severe polytrauma, resulting in very serious brain damage", the hospital added.

"Nicky Hayden's condition remains extremely serious".

He won three races in a career from 2003-2015, before switching to Superbike full-time, although he made two starts in MotoGP a year ago to fill in for injured Honda rider Jack Miller.

The 35-year-old American, who now races for the Red Bull Honda World Superbike team, was hurt while on a training exercise along the Rimini coastline when his bicycle was hit by a auto.

The former MotoGP champion sustained brain damage when hit by a auto when cycling in Italy and has remained in intensive care since the crash.

The Maurizio Bufalini Hospital, where Hayden is being treated, said on Friday that his condition "remains unchanged" and "is extremely critical".
