Nicky Hayden's funeral will be held on Monday, the family of the 2006 MotoGP champion have announced.

An obituary issued by the Hayden family confirmed the 35-year-old, who succumbed on Monday to injuries he sustained in a cycling accident, will be laid to rest at the Saint Stephen Cathedral in his hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky.

The service will take place at 12pm CT (6pm BST) on Monday May 29, and will be livestreamed on his Facebook page.

Hayden's family have also established a memorial fund to help local children in the area.

The Red Bull-backed Ten Kate World Superbike team that Hayden was racing for in 2017 has just entered one bike for Stefan Bradl at this weekend's Donington Park round, with Hayden's bike set up in the garage in tribute.
