CYCLIST GOES OFF A LAP EARLY

Slovenian cyclist Luka Pibernik has become the star of blooper reels worldwide after celebrating winning stage five the Giro d’Italia…one lap too early.

The 23-year-old powered away from the pack to cross the line first, only to hear the last lap bell ringing in his confused ears.

The dishevelled Pibernik slipped back into the pack and finished 20 seconds back from the peliton, eventually coming in a red-faced 148th.
