CESENA, Italy — American motorcycle racer Nicky Hayden remains in "extremely critical" condition in hospital two days after he was hit by a car while training on his bicycle.

The Maurizio Bufalini Hospital, where Hayden is being treated, said on Friday that his condition "remains unchanged" and "is extremely critical."

The hospital has said he has severe cerebral damage and multiple traumatic injuries.
