MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo has withdrawn from Monday's German grand prix and needs another operation on his left shoulder after he crashed in practice at the Sachsenring.

The Spanish Yamaha rider, who is second in this year's standings behind compatriot Dani Pedrosa of Honda after seven of 18 races, was running quickest in the afternoon session but lost control at turn 10 and landed heavily on his left shoulder.
