Yellow jersey not enough for Tour de France kiss

ITALIAN rider Vincenzo Nibali won stage two of the Tour de France, scoring the yellow jersey on Sunday.

But his win was not enough to earn him a polite kiss from the fairer sex once he made it to the podium.

The cyclist with the Astana team gave to polite pecks on the cheek to the woman on his right, but was given the cold shoulder almost literally by the woman on his left.


Of course, Nibali kept calm, showering his affections on a plush toy instead.
