Rossi could be in trouble after a video has emerged showing him pushing past a selfie-taking fan as he rode through the paddock on what appeared to be a non-racing bike before last Sunday's Valencia Grand Prix

Despite the nine-time world champion apologising for what he had done the fan said that she is considering pressing charges.

Rossi first blamed the confusion in the paddock, in what was at first a jocular answer to the incident but then went on to say that he had to apologise and hoped the fan was alright.

The incident was reported through Spanish media sources with the woman, identified as Ana Cabanillas Vazquez not accepting Rossi's apology.

"I would have accepted his apology if it had been an accident, but seeing the video, you can tell that it was done on purpose," she said speaking to COPE radio.

"I have a small bruise on my leg. I'll consider pressing charges."
