 Tamberi apologizes: & quot; I fell into Fassinotti's provocation and I have never seen him again. I'll tell you what happened & quot;

At the Assoluti of Rieti Gimbo Tamberi was confirmed as Italian champion of the high jump. But, in the end, he was angry with the opponent of the play-off, Marco Fassinotti: between the two gestacci and a few words too many. The next day, on Instagram, Tamberi apologized and wanted to clarify what happened on the platform. “First of all, I apologize for my gesture, I fell into the provocation of Fassinotti who had been going on for several minutes and I have not seen him anymore – said the Tokyo Olympic champion -. When I stretched out my hand to shake his he mocked for my physical condition, according to him I can't jump more than that right now. It hurt me because the World Cup is close at hand, but I shouldn't have reacted like that, I wasn't a good example. Sportsmanship first of all. ” .
