North West 200 crash racer Farquhar remains seriously ill in hospital

By Allan Preston

Road racing star Ryan Farquhar remains seriously ill after being readmitted to intensive care following his 100mph crash at the North West 200.

The Dungannon racer was returned to the ICU in the Royal Victoria Hospital on Friday.

A spokesman for the Belfast Health Trust described him as being "seriously ill".

Having suffered serious chest and pelvic injuries, many believed the rider was on the mend after being transferred to a general ward on Wednesday.

A close friend of the racing star said recently that Mr Farquhar's deterioration came "out of the blue" after he appeared to be in "good form" in hospital just days ago.
