Eddy Merckx suffered a heavy fall on Sunday while riding a bicycle and is hospitalized with "a serious head injury," reports Het Nieuwsblad . The legendary Belgian cyclist, 74, was initially admitted to intensive care, given his heart problems, although in the last hours he has already been transferred to the plant.
This Monday, Merckx will undergo further tests at a Dendermonde medical center, just outside Ghent. According to the aforementioned Belgian newspaper, the pentacampeón of the Tour de France was transferred to the plant after his initial admission to the emergency department.
Paul Van Himst, former Anderlecht footballer and old friend, confirmed to the Sporza television channel that last night he had maintained telephone communication with Mercks' wife. "According to Claudine, in general everything is going well," he said.
