No Victory Kiss: Tour De France Stage Winner Gets Rejected At Podium

The thrill of victory meets the agony of defeat.

Italian cyclist Vincenzo Nibali was having a pretty great day Sunday. He had won Stage 2 of the Tour de France, and was on stage, being lavished with flowers, prizes, and a coveted yellow jersey.

He gave the podium girl to his right a very European cheek-kiss. But when he turned to his left, he got hilariously rejected. The second podium girl fixes his jersey, turns away and gives him a stuffed animal.

She must have been rooting for someone else. But at least Nibali got to kiss the lion.
