Bellis to return to Britain soon

Jonny Bellis is set to return to Britain soon, around six weeks after he suffered a fractured skull in a scooter crash in Italy.

The latest information, a brief statement from British Cycling says, "Jonny is doing really well since the last update and is communicating by writing messages on a white board.

"They are looking into flying him to London shortly."

The young Manx star was in a medically-induced coma for three-and-a-half weeks following the accident near his Tuscan training base on September 19th.

He was operated on on September 25th to remove a blood clot from between his skull and brain.

The circumstances surrounding the crash are still unclear, although it's reported local police are looking into the possibility of it being a hit-and-run as no skid marks were found on the road where it happened.
