A hospital statement issued on Monday morning read: “Alex Zanardi remains stable. The third night of his ICU stay passed without variations.

“The clinical conditions therefore remain unchanged, while the neurological picture remains serious.

“The multi-disciplinary team that takes care of him will evaluate in the next few days any diagnostic-therapeutic actions which are to be taken.”

Zanardi, 53, had both legs amputated after a crash in the American Memorial 500 Cart race in Germany in 2001.
