Fabio Jakobsen has given an update as he recovers from his career-threatening crash at last year's Tour de Pologne, having undergone another surgery to his face on Thursday.

The Deceuninck-QuickStep sprinter had surgery to insert implants into his jaw as well as reconstructing scars in his mouth but hopes to make a rapid recovery and ride his bike in a week.
