Cal op 'painful' 'but 'successful'

MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow had surgery to mend his collarbone yesterday, which he broke in three places at Silverstone at the weekend.

He tweeted earlier saying he was due to leave hospital, after doctors said the operation had gone well.

Doesn't sound like it was particularly pleasant though.

Again, via Twitter he said, "I have never in my career to date been in as much pain as I was yesterday and through the night after my operation.

"Doc says it went well, if I was to say if it went well I would have thought i had no shoulder left because of the pain !!!"

Jonathan Rea, World Superbike rider and Castletown resident, gets his broken wrist operated on today.
