Skip the return to Colombia: even Maria Fernanda, the girlfriend of the pink jersey, is positive. They will remain in solitary confinement in Montecarlo
Egan Bernal tested positive for Covid-19, like his girlfriend Maria Fernanda Motas. And so the king of the Giro d’Italia 2021 (and of the Tour 2019) will not return to Colombia as planned: the trip was scheduled for Saturday 5 June and for this reason both he and Maria Fernanda had undergone a test that gave a result. positive.
Both have rather mild symptoms and are isolated in Monte Carlo: the trip is of course now postponed to a later date. Bernal had triumphed in Milan on Sunday 30 May, becoming the second Colombian in history to win the Giro d’Italia ahead of Damiano Caruso and Simon Yates after having also won two stage wins, Campo Felice and Cortina.
