British motorcycle rider Daniel Hegarty has died after crashing in the Macau Grand Prix on Saturday.

Top Gun Racing's rider Hegarty crashed at Fisherman's Bend, sustaining serious injuries as he hit the barriers after losing his helmet.

The race was red flagged and not restarted given the immediate severity of the incident.

The Brit was riding for Topgun Racing Honda in China, and died en route to the hospital.

"Daniel's family have been contacted, and the committee will ensure every assistance is extended to them", read a statement from the organisers.

The Macau Grand Prix takes place on a notoriously hard street circuit that claims numerous cars, drivers, and riders every single year.

Northern Irish racer Glenn Irwin was credited with the win having led when the race was abandoned.

"It's a tragic end to the day - that's not even a podium, we stood on a box with three steps", Irwin said. "That's road racing and it's tough".

The Macau Grand Prix has been run since 1954 with motorbikes first competing in 1967.

This is the second deadly accident at the Macau GP since 2012, after Luis Carreira of Portugal died on the same turn.

Ms Draycott from East Bridgford said: 'It is with a broken heart to tell you that the love of my life passed away this morning.

I appreciate all the congratulations, but the result is irrelevant, and all our thoughts are with Dan's team and family at this very sad time.
