Sonny Colbrelli returned to Italy after being transferred from the Hospital Universitari de Girona yesterday.
Given the stable clinical conditions, Sonny Colbrelli was given clearance to travel to Italy.
The athlete, who collapsed shortly after finishing stage 1 of the Volta a Catalunya, was given immediate emergency care and then transported to the hospital to undergo examinations and investigate the cause of the unstable cardiac arrhythmia that required defibrillation.
Further examinations will be carried out in the upcoming days in an Italian center of excellence for the diagnosis and therapy of cardiovascular diseases. Until then, everybody at Team Bahrain Victorious wishes Sonny a quick recovery surrounded by the love of his family.
