Spaniard Marc Marquez won a fifth MotoGP title and then suffered a bizarre shoulder injury while celebrating victory in Japan.
This was Marquez’s eighth win of the season at his team’s home track.
Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso was his main title rival but the Italian slid off while in second on the penultimate lap.
Fellow Honda rider Cal Crutchlow finished runner-up after Dovizioso’s fall with Suzuki’s Alex Rins edging out Yamaha’s Rossi for third.
Marquez moves level with Mick Doohan on five titles in the top class, with only Valentino Rossi (7) and Giacomo Agostini (8) ahead of him.
