He was rushed to the hospital, and a recent update from his team confirms he is in "extremely critical" condition.

Since the accident, Hayden's girlfriend Jackie and several members of the Honda World Superbike team that he now races for have been with him too.

"The young man, who is still in the intensive care unit of Cesana's Bufalini hospital, has suffered a serious polytrauma with subsequent serious cerebral damage", read a statement from the hospital.

Former world motorcycling champion Nicky Hayden was in "extremely critical" condition on Thursday following a serious bicycle accident which left him with brain damage, as his fiancée and mother kept a vigil at his bedside.

Honda said he was taken initially by ambulance to a hospital near the coastal resort of Rimini, before then being transferred to Cesena.

Hayden began racing in the World Superbike Championship in 2016.

"The most handsome thing I have about him is when he gave his hand to me after the unlucky race of Valencia 2015, on the lap of honour".

"Come on Nicky, we're all with you".

The 35-year-old Hayden won the MotoGP title in 2006. In the MotoGP, he ran 218 Grand Prix races with three wins and 28 podium places.
