Formula One hero, Fernando Alonso is set to undergo an operation on his jaw and face after he was struck by a car while cycling in Switzerland.

On a bike ride to build up his fitness ahead of his return to F1, Alonso, 39, was hit by a car near his home in Lugano but is reported to be ‘conscious’ and ‘well in himself’. 

Spanish radio station Cadena SER detailed after news of the crash broke that he is to be transferred to another hospital in Switzerland, a facility in the city of Bern, as he requires an operation.

It was reported that Alonso’s face and jaw had been ‘very affected’ from the crash after he collided with the ground following his impact with the car.  

According to a report by Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the two-time F1 world champion was struck by a car while out on a training ride near Lugano, where he lives. 

Alonso has been building up his fitness ahead of a return to Formula 1 with Alpine – the team previously known as Renault – after a two-year spell away from the grid. 

A statement from the Alpine F1 team read, “Alpine F1 Team can confirm that Fernando Alonso has been involved in a road accident while cycling in Switzerland.

“Fernando is conscious and well in himself and is awaiting further medical examinations tomorrow morning.
