Gresini Honda’s Alvaro Bautista has undergone a succesful operation to remove the pins from the leg he broke in the opening round of the 2011 MotoGP season at Qatar.

The 27-year-old, who has switched from Suzuki to Honda for 2012, has struggled with the leg after the emergency operation in Doha but he is now free of the metalwork.

"Thanks to the all the staff at the USP San José hospital and Dr. Angel Villamor’s terrific team, who have always treated me well. Now I’ll rest and tomorrow morning I’ll get discharged to rest at home,” he said.
