MADRID (AP) — Hospital officials "fear for the life" of former motorbike world champion Angel Nieto, who has been in their care with head injuries since a quadbike accident last week.

In a statement released on Thursday, the Policlinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario hospital on the Spanish island of Ibiza says that the 70-year-old Nieto "is in very critical condition."

Nieto was injured while riding a quadbike on July 26.

Nieto won 13 world motorbike championships between 1969 and 1984.
