Vincenzo Nibali was flanked by two women as he celebrated on the podium after winning the second stage of the Tour de France today. One handed him flowers and in return, Nibali gave her those courtesy kisses on the cheek. He wasn't as smooth with the other girl.
The second podium girl seemed to be waiting to hand him a stuffed lion before congratulating him, but Nibali wasn't aware. There's a clear breakdown in the celebration/kiss transition. The cyclist tries to play it off by adjusting his collar, but we all know what happened.
Whatever. Nibali and the lion are blowing this popsicle stand.
Io & Leo!! 😃😃😃😃 pic.twitter.com/QQf9wEhfen
