Alex Zanardi shows ‘significant improvement’ after road accident, say doctors

Paralympic champion and ex-Formula 1 driver Alex Zanardi’s health has shown “significant clinical improvements” during his time in intensive care after a road accident in June, doctors say. Zanardi, 53, suffered serious head injuries when he lost control of his handbike in a road race in Tuscany and crashed into a truck on 19 June. He had both his legs amputated after a motor racing accident in 2001 at the Lausitzring track in Germany, and has since become one of the best-known figures in Paralympic sports. Zanardi won two gold medals at the 2012 London Paralympic Games and four years later won two more in Rio de Janeiro.
