10-time motocross World Champion Stefan Everts is in hospital in an induced coma after contracting malaria whilst taking part in a charity race in the Republic of Congo.
The 46-year old is currently in intensive care and is undergoing treatment for the potentially fatal condition. Less than a month ago Everts traveled to the Republic of Congo in Lubumbashi to take part in a four-hour endurance race. The race was a charity event to raise money for the construction of schools in that area of Africa.
At the end of last week, Everts reportedly fell ill upon return to his home in Belgium where Doctors admitted to hospital and put him in the coma. His condition is reported as stable.
