“I went back to the car and called Dr [Xavier] Mir and he said ‘you must be joking?’ As you can imagine, they thought I was a lunatic, but I looked down at the ankle and honestly the size of it was like a gold ball.

“So, I have to go, they shoved a needle inside the joint and took away the blood, but it never went down. I spent the night with the ice unit on the ankle. Now the ankle is still swollen, it’s completely black but it’s not even a quarter of the size of what it was yesterday.”

Asked if this latest run of injuries is a sign from his body to re-evaluate his ambitions to race with Aprilia in 2021, Crutchlow said: “I don’t believe in that, I believe in hard work, dedication and going for it.

“If you’re telling me ‘your body’s telling you to stop, retire, blah, blah, blah’… I don’t see it in that way. I see that you get out what you put in.

"At the moment maybe luck hasn’t been on my side, but hopefully it will turn around soon and I’ll continue to be fast. But what will be will be, that’s what I believe. If I’m able to be competitive, then I will.

"If I have the job I want next year, then I’ll have it. If I don’t, then so be it – that’s life.”
