Watch: Spoofer Wearing Roberto Baggio Jersey Briefly Invades Giro D'Italia
By Mikey Traynor Updated

The big story from Tuesday's Giro D'Italia action was undoubtedly Tom Dumoulin's lead being cut due to him needing to stop for a poo.

The sportsmanship debate raged, as a stage prior the Dutch rider had stopped while in the lead to allow Nairo Quintana to recover from a crash, but was not given the same courtesy for his unplanned stoppage as teams and riders attacked instead.

But that's irrelevant, because many seemed to ignore the fact that a bloke in a wig and what appears to be an old school Roberto Baggio Brescia jersey briefly joined the race at the 16th stage.

He spotted the TV camera, he saw his moment and he took it, much like the great striker himself did when he wasn't being marked by Paul McGrath.

Nearly got hit by the motorbike and all.

Like a Kerry jersey at The Masters, we do love a good obscure jersey sighting and hopefully this is something we see as the race progresses through different areas, although maybe with less risk of hitting any of the riders.

Vincenzo Nibali would eventually win the race, although Tom Dumoulin still leads overall as the mountain stages continue.
