It's been confirmed that TT star Ian Hutchinson has broken his leg again.

The 8 time winner twisted his leg whilst practising for a stunt show in London yesterday.

The fracture is understood to be away from previous breaks sustained in a crash at Silverstone in 2010.

Hutchy made history in 2010 becoming the first rider to win all five TT races in one week, but missed last year's event whilst recovering from a horrific leg break, which has so far needed 19 operations to correct.

He'll have to have an external fixator fitted to help the new injury heal, but hopes to be released from hospital as soon as possible.

It's not known how long the fracture is expected to keep the Yorkshire rider off the track.
