Paris: Six-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez says he has finally recovered from the injuries that wiped out all of last season and will return at the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday week.

"See you in Portimao next week," Honda's Spanish rider posted on Instagram on Saturday.

His Honda team confirmed their star rider was at last ready to ride.
