13-time motorbike world champ Nieto dies at 70

Spanish motor cycling champion Angel Nieto died late on Thursday evening as the outcome of head injuries suffered when he fell off a quad bike on the island of Ibiza just over a week ago.

"We are all sad". "Real Madrid are deeply saddened by the passing of Angel Nieto and extend their condolences to his family and friends at this hard time", the European champions tweeted.

Angel Nieto was being treated in the Policlinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario hospital on the Spanish island of Ibiza. His condition was initially reported as serious but not critical but got significantly worse on the morning of 3rd August.

Spanish compatriot and current world MotoGP champion Marc Márquez was amongst the first to pay tribute to Nieto, who also grabbed 139 podium places in his career.

Ángel Nieto was a master on smaller-capacity bikes, and in a 22-year top-level career from 1964-1986 won six 50cc and seven 125cc world titles.

Spain's King Felipe VI and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy shared their condolences on social media, while several riders joined in the outpouring of grief. "Rest in peace maestro!"
