MONZA, Italy, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Italian MotoGP great Valentino Rossi has broken his leg in a training accident that looks set to end his title chances for another year, local media reported on Thursday.
There was no immediate confirmation from his Yamaha team.
The Gazzetta dello Sport website said Rossi, who is currently third overall and 26 points behind leading compatriot Andrea Dovizioso, had fallen off an enduro bike and would undergo surgery in Urbino.
The next race is at Misano on Italy’s Adriatic coast on Sept. 10. (Writing by Alan baldwin; Editing by Ken Ferris)
