Moto GP racer Marc Márquez was reportedly assaulted by Italian reporters in his garage, who were allegedly mocking him for a controversial crash during the Moto GP race earlier this week.
According to the report from marca.com, citing police sources, Márquez returned from a day of dirt bike riding with his brother and father when they were approached in a garage by two Italian reporters.
The reporters allegedly approached the racer in a mocking manner, attempting to interview him sarcastically. When Marc refused to comment, the report claims the reporters broke open bottles of cava (Spanish wine) in a way mimicking the podium celebrations of a race, and also presented a mocked up trophy in the form of an erect penis and balls.
It is unclear exactly what was said, but Márquez made headlines earlier this week when he was involved in a controversial crash with fellow rider Valentino Rossi during a Moto GP race, following a claim by Rossi that Márquez was “teaming up” with another driver, Jorge Lorenzo.
