FORMER Coventry Bees Speedway rider Kenni Larsen has left hospital three weeks after being shot in the head in his home country of Denmark.

The popular racer, who spent two seasons with the Bees during their 2011 and 2012 campaigns, was reportedly involved in an incident with one of his mechanics.

Larsen was fighting for his life in Odense University Hospital and only came off the life support machine 11 days after the incident.

Since coming out of a coma just over a week ago, Larsen’s family have posted several updates and said his body and motor skills seem fine.

The 27-year-old was allowed home last weekend where he continues to recover.

Larsen also raced for the Newcastle Diamonds and Peterborough Panthers during his racing career and this season spent time with high-profile Polish club Zielona Gora.
