Girmay was taken to hospital by ambulance to have his eye injury examined.

He was first treated in the ambulance and after the examination he received a bandage / eye patch over his left eye.

The incident meant that Girmay had to cancel the press conference that normally follows a stage win.

According to the stable Intermarche-Wanty-Gobert Materiaux (IWG), a decision will be made on further driving for Girmay on Wednesday morning.

This according to information to Eurosport who spoke with the stable's doctors.

The IWG stable has not commented on the eye damage on any of its news platforms.

Girmay sprinted away from Mathieu van der Poel at the end.

Just van der Poel was about to get into trouble when he opened a Prosecco bottle after winning the first stage in Hungary.

There the cork flew in the shoulder.

Even at several other awards ceremonies during the competition, it has looked dangerous when the bottle has traditionally been opened with a bang to celebrate the victory.
