22-year-old cyclist who was hit by cork on the podium withdrew from the Giro

On Tuesday, after winning the 10th stage of the Giro on the podium in Jesi, Girmay received the flowers and, as he picked up the bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate as usual, the cork came loose and hit him in the left eye.
Biniam Girmay, the first Eritrean cyclist to win a stage in major Tours, announced on Wednesday that he was forced to withdraw from the Giro due to a hemorrhage in his left eye caused by the cork.
