ROME May 18 Former MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden spent a second day in intensive care on Thursday after colliding with a auto while cycling in eastern Italy, the American's Honda World Superbike team said on Thursday.

The news was announced by the American's Honda World Superbike team. "The prognosis remains reserved".

"The American, who remains hospitalized in the Intensive Care unit in the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena, has suffered serious trauma with severe brain damage as a outcome", the statement reads. The 2006 Champion has since been moved to Cesena hospital.

Doctors had placed the 2006 MotoGP champion, known as "The Kentucky Kid", into a medically induced coma after the incident on Wednesday, the BBC reported earlier.

Koeman not confident Barkley will sign new Everton contract
Koeman issued an ultimatum to Barkley earlier in May, urging him to sign a new contract or make clear his decision to leave. Koeman says the length of time it has taken Barkley to consider the deal suggests he could move on.

American multiple world champion Wayne Rainey also said he was praying for Hayden.

"As well as having his fiancé Jackie by his side, Nicky has now been joined by his brother Tommy and mother Rose who arrived in Italy from the United States..." Paramedics stabilized him on site, and then he was taken to the nearest hospital with the highest gravity code.

"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.

"Members of Nicky's team and his fiancee are with him in the hospital".

"The situation is stable", said the brief statement issued by the hospital on Friday morning.

Hayden won just three grands prix in MotoGP - all in 2005-06 - but he famously took the world title that season after fighting it out with Valentino Rossi.

"The most attractive 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". Stay close as we will keep you updated on his condition as soon as new details emerge.
