Cycling commentator Ned Boulting has said that a 'porn film' was 'inexplicably' played through Giro d'Italia sound channels before the stage began today.
The author and journalist added it was a 'source of considerable hilarity' and a sound engineer was trying 'desperately' to locate where it was coming from.
Former cyclist David Millar commented: "The Giro is the gift that keeps on giving."
Sound engineer at the finish line here running around desperately trying to locate the source of the audio from a porn film which is inexplicably being played through various Giro sound channels. This is the source of considerable hilarity. #Giro2021 #RAI
