Biniam Girmay is discharged from hospital and will decide on Wednesday whether to continue the Giro

The first news of Biniam Girmay, victim of an unlikely injury after his victory on the 10th stage of the Giro on Tuesday in Jesi, is rather reassuring. The Eritrean runner, the first runner from black Africa to win a stage on a grand tour, had the misfortune to see the cork of a bottle of Prosecco explode in his eye on the ceremonial podium, which forced him to make a detour to the hospital in order to undergo additional examinations. Fortunately, the sprinter got out shortly after 7 p.m. and went straight to his team’s hotel. He will decide whether or not to continue the Giro after a night’s rest. On Wednesday, the peloton must reach Reggio Emilia.
