    Valentino Rossi had to receive stitches in his left hand and left foot after a domestic incident in his house in Italy.

    The Yamaha team said Rossi was closing the curtains in his house when he tripped and fell onto a glass table, cutting the ring finger of his left hand and the sole of his left foot.

    He went to the hospital and received a few stitches.

    The team said the injuries were not serious but admitted it was not yet clear whether or not they will make him uncomfortable when riding in this week's test.

    Rossi will still fly out to Malaysia as planned and will try to ride his bike when the test begins on Thursday.
