Giro d’Italia champion Egan Bernal has tested positive for Covid-19.

Bernal, 24, had planned on travelling to Colombia this weekend to celebrate his Giro win but will do so after his isolation period ends instead.

Ineos said 2019 Tour de France winner Bernal has “displayed mild symptoms but is in good health”.

Bernal won the Giro by a margin of one minute 29 seconds over Italy’s Damiano Caruso, with Britain’s Simon Yates in third.

Following his second Grand Tour win, Bernal said he does not intend to compete in this year’s Tour de France, which runs from 26 June to 18 July.
