 Athletics, quarrel between Tamberi and Fassinotti: no handshake and a few words too many

Quarrel between the Olympic champion Gianmarco Tamberi and Marco Fassinotti at the Absolute Athletics Championships in Rieti. Both failed the 2.26 in the high jump. Situation similar to that of the Tokyo race, where Tamberi and Mutaz Barshim agreed and won gold ex aequo. Here, however, no amicable solution. Tamberi accuses Fassinotti for this. He wins the playoff, jumping 2.26 and blatantly refuses the handshake of his opponent, to whom he also says a few words that are not exactly kind. Reason why Tamberi was sanctioned with a yellow card by the jury for unsportsmanlike conduct.
