Marc Marquez secured his 5th world title in Japan today, winning the race in Japan and sending all his fans into frenzy.
The celebrations though brought about some harm on Marquez, who ended up dislocating his shoulder, when his teammates rushed to celebrate with him.
Marquez admitted that he will have to be careful with that shoulder on the dance floor tonight as well.
“The shoulder just popped out. Luckily with the adrenalin it doesn’t hurt, but I’ll need to be careful not to overdo it on the dancefloor tonight,” he said.

British rider, Scott Redding was the major culprit in the shoulder fiasco and later apologised to his dear friend about the unfortunate incident.
“Once we were rivals, big rivals, now we have nothing but respect and fun. Sorry for the dislocated shoulder.” Redding said post the race celebrations.

Marquez has been absolutely brilliant this season and deserves all the praise for changing the face of Moto GP.
His record 5th title would be one that would be remembered for a long time, as Marquez has been brilliant all through the season, putting in solid performances week in and week out.
The dislocated shoulder incident should prove to be a good reminder to Marquez to get his body in shape before the next season. It will also serve as a happy memory, showing camaraderie between rivals.
